This is one of the few waders which I managed to identify before comparing the photograph with the book - there aren't that many with green legs!

The Greenshank is migratory and, whilst some overwinter here, most are simply passing through on their southbound journey. The bird photographed here seemed to have made friends with a Redshank.

The three pictures below and right will enlarge.
