Greater Yellowlegs at Wooton Wetlands Park

I had an early appointment this morning, but the weather was perfect and I headed to Thomas Point for a quick look. It was a waste, so I decided to go to Wooton to see what the warming weather might have brought.
A flock of Tree Swallows was the highlight, as well as a Bald Eagle and a Greater Yellowlegs, which I’ve only seen once before.
A good day.

Tree Swallows are cavity nesters, and this hole would be perfect for a nest.

The Greater Yellowlegs’ long bill is perfectly suited to his diet.

These Ring Necked Ducks flew away shortly after I spotted them.
