We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Greater Yellowlegs is seen in the Ibera wetlands in the spring along with other migrants.
It is very similar to the Lesser Yellowlegs but side by side one can see the difference in size.
It measures around 30cm , has pale underparts and mottled brown upperparts. The legs are long and bright yellow.
The bill is long and slightly upturned.
