Little Stint - Titchwell, Norfolk

One of my life time first birds seen in Norfolk was the Little Stint. At first it was seen with the aid of another kind birders scope, but a little later it was seen very close with the naked eye, and then my camera. A lovely little wading bird one that I won't forget in a hurry.



Also seen at Titchwell were a Ruff, Grey Plover and Common Redshank. Some pictures of these below.

  9. A great series of photos of the shorebirds. I commonly see Red-necked Stints - but not Little Stints!
    also no Redshanks! Both are on my "wish list"!
