Not for me... Note the yellow/orange background reflecting through the water: this is probably affecting the colours you're seeing, either through direct reflection or apparent contrast effects

And the legs of Greenshanks can look yellowish anyway.

Greater Yellowlegs is a major rarity anywhere this side of the Atlantic.

Also Greater Y'legs has vivid bright yellow legs, not dull slightly yellowish-green as here.

I guess this Greenshank was photographed at La Charca. Always worth checking as it does get some good birds.
