Lesser Yellowlegs returns

first seen on October 30th 2011 as a juvenile this Lesser Yellowlegs stayed in North Lincs to February 2012 when the freeze seemed to have killed it off - presumably it moved to a milder spot as it returned on October 28th with its Redshank buddy now in partial summer plumage
seriously rubbish light this morning but at least it was co-operative for once at this notoriously tricky locality
You can hear a brief burst of song on the video here
