Common Greenshank seen last Sunday morning in the river near Grant's office
This bird above is a common pale grey long-legged wader with a long pointed, slightly upturned bill. The underparts are white and the legs are grey-green. Utters a very distinctive "chew-chew" call and when feeding has a habit of dashing about in shallow water (as seen above) The sexes are laike and immature resembles adult. A visitor from Eurasia, it most likely occurs singly (like above!) or in small loose parties around almost any water - coastal or inland.
