at goldcliff lagoons this morning brief views were had of a very plainly marked stint with white outer tail feathers .It was seen alongside a dunlin and appeared much smaller.It appeared to be more buff-brown than the recent temminks but like this bird had an unmarked face and a complete breast band.In all probability it was another temminks,confirmation would be appreciated.Also there this morning two peregrines and a hobby.
