Somewhat blurry images (because of the distance and the sunny intervals) of the third for the country (although the first two sightings, in 1995, may have been referring to the same individual). This bird really was a Greater Yellowlegs, as it was even larger than the Greenshanks T. nebularia  accompanying it.

  Greater Yellowlegs  -  Grote Geelpootruiter  Tringa melanoleuca   probably first-summer;  videograbs (320x).
