Looks like a Grey Plover to me, cos of bill size/shape.
However I have no books to hand...
So I'm prepared to back-pedal!!!

It's a grey plover. Much much bigger than a little stint

Agree with Grey Plover. Guessing you may have been misled by the distance or if it was on its own.....



(Interesting avatar pic by the way .... looks like the robin has comedy arms reaching off out of shot lol .....)

Thanks dddiver, Michael, dogfish and Dan!

The wader was on one of the inlets of the Ria Formosa and as Dan has mentioned it was at a distance and one of just a handful there.

Your help is very much appreciated all of you!



I am now looking at my avatar Robin in a different light, Dan!
