Temminck's before breakfast

After dipping the Temminck's Stint yesterday I thought it might be worth another shot, but getting there before the fishermen disturbed everything. Arriving at the reservoir at 5.15 this morning paid off as I found the stint after just a few minutes scanning with the scope. Feeding with a Little Ringed Plover it was creeping about like a mouse. Sadly the light was poor for photos.

Walking back to the car I was charged by this stoat, a real shame that the light was so poor.

A fly-by Hobby on the way home was an unexpected bonus. A successful trip and back in the house before 7am.
