Hesketh Out Marsh

At Hesketh Out Marsh today, two juvenile little stints and a third bird which was the size of little stint but looked a bit odd, with no tramlines down its back, possibly a longer curved bill, a more upright stance and a distinct supercilium. Whilst the other two birds fed on the exposed mud in a typical little stint like way, the third bird ran around in the grass and was on a different pool, about 100m away from the others. Unfortunately we didn't see it long enough to be sure either way, it eventually disappeared into thee grass.....

Also today, marsh harrier, 3 greenshank and lots of little egrets.
