I thought the breast band suggested RN Stint but I was on my way to the COG outing at Googong and did not study it for more than a minute.  I will return this afternoon.

Well, I saw the bird early in the morning. Based mainly on leg colour (and I focussed on this for a while) I identified it as a Red-necked Stint (The bird was never deep in mud, legs at the most halfway in it, would assume the true pale  colour of the legs would have shown at least in their upper parts). I couldn't tell wether the breast band was unbroken or not. Overall it seemed to be a fairly grey bird and the cap also less pronounced, both features may also support Red-necked Stint.


My vision may have been a bit shaky, it was very cold at 6.15 h.


It would seem, we need further opinions.
