A very enjoyable day today at Lothian. Me and Dad descended upon Musselburgh Lagoons to try for the Wilson’s Phalarope but sadly it had already gone so all we saw was Wigeon and Teal.
Then we went onto Aberlady Bay and nearly straight away I picked up the long staying Lesser Yellowlegs. Also present where Golden Plover c25, 3 Grey Plover, Grey Heron, Curlew, Oystercatcher, Redshank, Wigeon, Shelduck, and Herring Gulls. I was to busy looking at the Lesser Yellowlegs so I might have missed the odd thing. If you haven’t seen the bird yet, go and see it! It’s a beaut!
Fact: It is the longest ever staying Lesser Yellowlegs on record.
No life tick sadly, but that doesn't matter.
