Long Toed Stint, August 29th 2011.

An immature Long Toed Stint at Kamiiso 3 years ago today. Normally this species seems to be extremely shy but not this individual. This pic was only at 300mm and is uncropped too.........

It had appeared the day before and was still around the day after too, 3 days hanging around in a rather dirty little stream flowing into the beach at Kamiiso.

  1. Young birds are often more obliging for photographers I think. I hope we get some this summer as they seem to be being seen more here.

    1. Young LT Stints are usually as shy as adults, maybe this one was a bit weird and extrovert by LTS standards.

  2. Lovely shot. I wish we had more "extrovert" birds around here !
