The little stint is a tiny wading bird with a short straight fine black bill and medium-length black legs.
This tiny wader occurs mainly by freshwater marshes, pools and lakes in the UK, although it also visits creeks and lagoons in estuaries. It breeds mostly in the Arctic and is rare in this country.
Autumn birds have two pale stripes or 'braces' down the back. It does not breed in the UK, but is a passage migrant, with most birds being juveniles seen in autumn
It is much scarcer in spring, when small numbers of adults are seen, and a very few birds spend the winter here, most migrating to Africa. Often seen with feeding dunlin.
Food is small invertebrates picked off the mud.
