In my opinion, for what that is worth, the 2 Red-necked Stints at the FSTW on Sunday were adults moulting into basic plumage. Lindell's image shows rusty-coloured feathers on the upper breast that are most probably the last vestiges of breeding plumage rather than the first stages of its development. The rusty feather margins of the mantle and the lack of faint white lines at its edge along with the well-developed post-ocular supercillium also suggest post-breeding adult plumage rather than juvenal. Its companion was more advanced in its post-breeding moult and hence paler.
