Lesser Yellowlegs, another admittedly terrible pics but the bird none the less!
some sketches of the Lesser Yellowlegs, taken in the field hence the wobbly hand writing
Portworthy Dam was my next stop and required an eight mile bike ride to reach, a rather mountainous trip through some very scenic woodland at parts. Most notably Cann Wood, which almost had a feel about it like that of the New Forest with its wide open expanses of ground and scattered pine trees.
Flourishes of rain followed and I still had plans to twitch the Lesser Scaup at Siblyback Lake but long delays at the station meant it wasn't worth the effort in the end as it would have been simply too dark.
