Venus Pool - Temmincks Stint

I was hoping for another wader and news of a Temminck's Stint at VP  had me dashing to the car! Well done Ian Sheppard on his find! It wasn't a County tick for me but it's one of those waders worth pulling all the stops out for!

Sadly the Stint had relocated to the muddy island in the middle of the pool which is a good 100m away but a record shot beckoned...

I called back late afternoon, it was still there and managed a flight shot for what it's worth!

At the rate this species drops in at Venus Pool, the next one will be due in May 2040!!
