Stint / peep Topsham

Watched from 17:30 till 20:30

Just after 17:30 picked up a distant wader of the goatwalk in Topsham at first had no idea of size but it caught my attention eventually it walked past some Dunlin and it appeared to be a stint / peep so a couple of calls and a short time later was joined by other local birders but no good views could be obtained it soon moved and was eventually relocated in the goosemoor reserve in Topsham with other birders it was either a Little Stint or a possible Semipalmated Sandpiper have attached a photo of the bird and have circulated some other photos and hoping to be able to solve the mystery, it flew of high east just after 20:00
