I finally got somewhere with my ID martin - not quite to species but I think it's close... let me know what you think.

Thanks Maria. I suppose this is a short-legged-daddy-long-legs that I found in dense forest leaf litter. The well known ones found in the grass and behind the shed are quite different.
