Those legs almost look yellow. Could it be a greater yellowlegs?


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.
