As reported yesterday, whilst at the Rio Velez I cam across a pair of grey waders feeding together in the shallow water and, at first glance given the marked difference in their respective sizes, immediately thought one Redshank and one Greenshank. At that point I lifted my binoculars to take a closer look.
