problematic small wader

Permalink 04:33:03 pm, Categories: Waders  

The conclusion is that this is in fact a little stint - probably a ssp that we are not used to

---------------------------------------
Seen near Dur on the eastern shore of Bahrain in a small wadi being used to dump semi treated water - (smells a lot but the birds like it) as always when you get a problematic bird its always too far or badly placed in respect to the sun to get a good photo; this bird was both - just didn't look right for the usual little stint as seen around such pools - have ruled out the bigger sandpiper and Temmicks which it certainly isn't. The camera can lie but looking at the pics am at odds to possitively identify the bird.
