Lesser Yellowlegs

It’s beautiful weather in Weymouth. The sun is out, birds are singing and I’m full of the joys of spring. I’m back to have a look at the Lesser Yellowlegs. It’s a beautiful bird and this light sets off its yellow legs beautifully against the reflection of the blue sky.

It’s a good job birds have waterproof dinosaur scales on their legs or they would look as wrinkled as I do after a bath.
