Lesser Yellow legs?

Recommended Posts

The wing and body shape are correct for a yellowlegs, but the question is witch one, unsure on bill size I cant tell from this picture if the bill is longer than the head but it does appear to be slightly upturned witch would point towards a greater yellowlegs. wait for experts.

I would say Greater. The bill does seem to be upturned, and it seems fairly long, it's just hard to tell length in proportion to the head in flight.

Yes, it is Greater Yellowlegs. Also note the feet extending beyond the tail. For Lesser's it is just the toes which stick out.
