Still more waders at IRRI - 30th Sept

The amazing run of waders at IRRI continued today with the appearance of a Temminck's Stint (last seen at IRRI on 3rd Oct 2009), and a Ruff, which is the first IRRI record as far as I know.

No sign of either the Red-necked Phalarope or the Common Redshank from the weekend, but the area of suitable habitat is large so it's possible they're hiding somewhere.

Winter plumaged Temminck's Stint. Quite a rarity here, though certainly dramatically under-reported.
Ruff. Also classified as rare, though I have seen them at Candaba and San Juan.
