Confiding Stint

A Little Stint found by young Jimmy late on Saturday evening

Now thats what i call "Showing Well" !

The Jack Sniper moves in for a closer look :-

# Where's it come from ? #

Nesting between June-August on the high Arctic tundra. Adults begin to move south in July, with juveniles in late August. They winters on mudflats and saltmarsh as far down as southern Africa.

We stayed till it went to roost, the light having almost gone - but no sign of it early this morning after a clear night.

Last time we were here it was a Little Gull we were watching & we had the trebble of Little up with an owl on the way out.
