Finally the long and drawn out ID of this bird has been put to bed! LGRE managed to get a friend to obtain some valuable video footage which proves the bird is infact a Long-toed Stint. The 3rd for Britain!
Very well done to Lee for bringing this bird to everyones attention once again. I for one am very glad to have it finally cleared up! And I am even more glad that at least 100 people saw the bird today. Although the views are typically distant some features are identifiable with a decent scope. And apologies to Paul who kept saying Long-toed to me last night when I was saying it couldn't be!
