Lesser Yellowlegs – 1994

Tringa flavipesMelyngoes BachRare visitor

Single birds have been seen at Skokholm on 9 and 10 October 1961 (D. Glanville), at Skomer on 7 August 1969 (P. Corkhill) and at Bosherston Pools from 7 to 25 October 1984 (R.J. Haycock, D. Little et al.). Any future creation of freshmarsh could well encourage vagrant waders to stay longer and might reveal that they are more frequent than the current detection rate suggests.
