Went to see if I could see the Lesser Yellowlegs.
as news came out I was 100yrd from the car that was watching it as it flow
of to the Cormorant's that were sat at a pool away from the road.
In a hour it worked its way back to the road side then flow off
again. After it stayed much more distant and was better with a scope
