After my previous post on a Wood Sandpiper giving rise to thoughts of Lesser Yellowlegs (see below) on my local patch at Chew Valley Lake, something really bizarre and somewhat spooky happened. Fast forward 10 days to 8 July and another Wood Sandpiper was reported at Chew Valley Lake. I went to see it, and guess what – it was really a Lesser Yellowlegs!
