Just before Christmas

... on a cold, frosty morning

The sweetcorn is a still a favourite
Cheeky chapie 
A blackbird likes them too

Can he reach them?

Gosh! This is a new one, definitely a wader but ...
is he a Wood Sandpiper, a Green Sandpiper, a Dunlin or something else? If you know, please tell me.
We've even had a queue for the sweetcorn!

Water rail? Dunlin have black bills, as do the sand pipers. Looks very like the illustrations of water rail to me.
