Little Stint, Ferry Meadows

Ferry Meadows is once again enjoying a good selection of scarce migrant birds, thanks largely to the sharp eyes of Matt Webb. These were needed for this Little Stint which could be incredibly hard to pick out on the gravelly shore of an island on Lynch Lake. It's also a bit distant for digiscoping but I thought I'd post a record shot.

Also Black Tern, Arctic Tern, Common Scoter and Mediterranean Gull there yesterday with all but the Scoter still present this morning.
