I tried for the Temminck’s Stint yesterday morning and unsurprisingly didn’t find it. Typically it was seen and reported again so I headed off out at 19.00 to have another go.
On arriving I did a quick scan, the Wood Sandpiper was pretty obvious as were four Little Ringed Plover, a nice summer plumaged Dunlin, four late Snipe and the usual common waders Redshank and Lapwing. After moving a few times I finally found this diminutive wader feeding in a little hollow and very hard to see.
Any digiscoped images were useless due to the bird staying generally behind vegetation and distance.
I did do a few landscape shots as I am now slowly updating the Soar Valley sites on Birdguides after they mistakenly placed Birstall Meadows in Birstall GPs.
