EDIT: Thank you for the correct ID - It's a Greenshank :) (If only I could correct the title...)

If someone can correct my ID I'd appreciate the correction.

Whilst waiting in a hide for a wild bear to appear we were treated to a show of numerous gulls, a couple of eagles and a few others birds including this:

Nice capture. I think Jake has this one right. After a quick Google search, this bird appears to be a European Common greenshank in breeding plumage.
