Mystery Bird October

Only one correct entry last month – well done Keiren Allinson. By far the most entries identified this small wader as a Temminks Stint. Other entries were for Grey Plover and Little Stint. Although our bird has greenish pale legs it is far too bright for a Temminck’s. It is in fact a Least Sandpiper. An American Peep – Peeps equate to the old world Stints. This bird was photographed recently in Tadoussac, Canada where a flock of some 4000 Semi-palmated Sandpipers that landed on rocks around our feet had a smattering of Least Sandpipers among them.

This month’s Mystery Bird is a little easier. Entries by e-mail to carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk
