Concerning the stint at the west end of Weir Wood Reservoir, for the last two days or so I've had concerns about its' identity. One thing I'm sure of is that it's not a Temminck's Stint. It has pale legs so this leaves us either Least Sandpiper or Long-toed Stint. The problem is the distance involved, 600 yards or so and the fact that these two birds are very rare indeed. Certain features have been noted, it has a warm brown crown, shows a supercilium, and has what looks like a full breast patch. It is front heavy, quite leggy and when feeding is slow and deliberate with the tail held high, doesn't seem to show 'braces' on the mantle and is a juvenile. A few birders were present this evening but no conclusion was drawn, the distance being a real issue, similarity with both Wilson Phalarope and Wood Sandpiper in actions were spoken of, just in miniature of course. Short of record shots or better photos it's possibly going to stay unidentified.
