Temminck's Stint (Calidris temminckii)
Temminck's Stint (Calidris temminckii) monotypic
Sandpipers and Allies (Scolopacidae)
Kalvebod Fælled (Vestamager), Amager, Denmark
Juvenile with scaly upperside and weaker breast color than seen on adults. The overall impression is always of a cold brownish colored bird quite distinct compared to other stints. The uniformly colored head, breast and throat is typical for the species whereas the other green-yellowish legged stints, Least Sandpiper and Long-toed Stints show more contrast often with a paler throat.
The black comma on the underwing coverts is a good field mark for the species as well.
Without having scrutinized the other peeps for variation, I would expect that the anchor shaped patterns on the wing coverts is a specific character of this species.
One bird present only. Probably my last for the year, mid September where most of the Africa bound shorebirds have gone through.
