Green Sandpiper (Tringa ochropus)

I spotted this one on my way to Slimbridge, it is a Green Sandpiper, I am not 100% sure of that, but I think it is. I have a good clean image, I am pleased.

  5. Hi Bob Yes I think you are correct. A Green Sandpiper. The legs should be greyish/green, not too obvious in the photo but the tail has broad wing bars and that can be seen very clearly in your photo. Margaret
