Not a bad stint at Ynyslas!

Although the tides are perfect at the moment the wind is just a bit too strong for mist-netting (and most of the terns have gone through now anyway) so it's back to dazzling. No owls seen last night so wader numbers were up a bit and the birds were a bit less flighty. As a result I managed to catch 37 Dunlin, 1 Sanderling and this cracking juv Little Stint. Still can't get over just how small they are in the hand!
