Description

I am thinking the one in front is a Lesser Yellowlegs and the one in back is a Greater Yellowlegs. The one in front looks smaller but if they were the same size birds should look larger... Also the one in the back has a slightly upturned bill.

They are also the largest shanks apart from the Willet, which is altogether...
