I downloaded this pic from my Flickr account. Surprised I had it!

Observation details

A juvenile was at the Meadows. The NE corner area in the swampy part. Saw the yellow legs, the white undertail coverts, and the lack of a white stripe on the flanks. It was cocking its tail frequently. Don't quite know what that is for. It was found by a visiting Polish birder.
