Greater Yellowlegs, Wadebridge, 12/9/2011

An adult Greater Yellowlegs,a real "MEGA" and only Cornwall's second record was found at Treraven Meadows in Wadebridge. This was the first sighting of this elegant American Tringa species since 11th October 1955. It certainly got the old pulse racing and my foot to the floor when the news broke!
