LONG-TOED STINT Calidris subminuta


Yet another Siberian breeder, the exact range being poorly known, and wintering mainly in South-east Asia. As stated previously, very similar to Least Sandpiper, the toes are distinctively long if seen well, but jizz is also an important factor, long legs and neck giving a much slenderer appearence. Hopefully it won't be too long before we get another chance to test i.d. criteria in Britain.
