Lesser Yellowlegs and Black-winged Stilt at Hayle Estuary

I passed by Hayle Estuary this morning to look at the Black-winged Stilt.  It was feeding close to the bridge on the causeway.  After a few minutes I noticed some Redshank fly in.  A closer look revealed a similar sized wader with long yellow legs.  I spoke to a chap beside me and he connected immediately.  A good job too as within a few brief minutes it flew off by itself round the corner towards the Lelant Saltings.  Myself and Laurie Williams searched for it but could not find it again.

I managed a few brief photos, as shown below:
