Greater Yellowlegs - First for Northumberland

Greater Yellowlegs Tringa Melanoleuca

Having dipped yesterday, an early start paid off with gripping views at Hauxley Nature Reserve. At one point the Greater Yellowlegs, accompanied by a Grey Phalarope, came within 10 feet of the hide.


  1. brilliant shots, not so close when I went but great to see!

  2. Good work! I assume no one was standing outside the hide as they do when I visit?

  3. That would be at the tin hide East Chev Anton, I'm guessing. There were a hundred people outside on Sat but all were inside the hides at Hauxley yesterday, where I took these pics - very cosy indeed!
