The Lesser Yellowlegs, Tringa flavipes, is a medium-sized shorebird. Adults have long yellow legs and a long thin dark bill, about the same length as the head. The body is grey brown on top and white underneath; the neck and breast are streaked with dark brown. The tail is white.

These birds forage in shallow water, sometimes using their bill to stir up the water. They mainly eat insects, small fish and crustaceans.

This shot was taken at Sungei Buloh Wetland Nature Reserve, Singapore.
