Best to check yourself!

With todays news of a mis-identified MEGA, it got me thinking (dangerous I know).
It's easy to be wise after the event but it's clear many experienced Birders went away happy they had seen a Greater Yellowlegs.
Having been the target of scepticism myself on Birdforum I have and always will admire Birders with the courage to follow their convictions and let news out.  Damned if you do...damned if you don't.
Maybe "possible/probable" would have been wiser until we saw this...

I love the wisdom of old tales...
