Hello guys Please help me to identify this bird some people identified it is Red-Necked Stint but it is likely to be rare sighting in Pakistan and never been recorded before according to my facts and knowledge. Sadly i have a only shot if it could help you.
Thanks
Shot taken at Haleji Wildlife Sanctuary,Sindh Pakistan
Date: 23rd September 2018
Note: bird was encountered in fresh water and close to cultivation area.

It's difficult from this angle, but I would say that the legs look a bit too long for Red-necked, and the bill seems fairly fine-tipped. It is more likely to be a Little Stint, which is commoner species in Pakistan I think.

Thank you guys 😊 i'm leaning towards little stint because of common winter visiter in country due to lack of more angle it is complicated to identify this individual.
