Little Stint Calidris minuta


As the main route during spring migration from Africa, where this
small wader stays during winter, to the northern tundra's,where it
breeds, leads over the middle of the Mediterranean and farther east  
only small numbers reach the North Sea coast in May. They arrive in
breeding plumage which they obtained during a partial moult in Africa.
