TEMMINK'S STINT at Porth Hellick

 Adult TEMMINK'S STINT at Porth Hellick 

   I got a call from Bryan this morning to tell me that there was a TEMMINK'S STINT at Porth Hellick! It was not until late afternoon that I got there and found it showing very well in front to the right of the seaward hide. It was a moulting adult and I observed it for over half an hour at close range. Out of the eleven Scilly records, I've managed to see four of them. The last record was a spring bird also at Porth Hellick found by Robin, 22-23/4/09 .
  There was also a single Green Sandpiper and Sand Martin, male Peregrine and 5 Greenshank.
