13-05-08 Lesser Yellowlegs

Spent most of the afternoon at the open hide trying to get some shots of the Lesser Yellowlegs another dull day so not the best conditions for photos, there was a fly over of 4 Garganey with three males chasing a female, and later 2 males dropped onto the pool, also 3 Cuckoos in the area one giving a great display as it sat on a fence post with the three birds all in view of my scope.

Digiscoped Lesser Yellowlegs Druridge pools ,still a rather dull day not helpful to digiscoping

Digiscoped lesser Yellowlegs ,no droop in the wing on this shot.

Lesser Yellowlegs,it seemed to have a problem with the left wing ,it drooped slightly at rest and some of the flight shots show a clear gap, a damaged feather shaft perhaps
