Long-toed stint: Twitchers flock to Leeds for rare bird sighting

 

 

A rare bird usually found across northern Asia has been spotted in Yorkshire for what is thought to be the first time.

Grills as we know สมัครslotxo are known for giving away a lot of bonuses, and that's why the game is so much. Online slots are so popular with players.

The long-toed stint has been drawing crowds since Friday after being spotted at St Aidans Nature Reserve in Leeds.

Usually breeding in Siberia and migrating towards southern Asia and Australia, it has only been observed anywhere in the UK a handful of times.

Photographer Dave Ward said seeing the bird so close to home was "amazing".

The small wader was identified by a local bird watching group last week on a lake at the reserve.

Since then, hundreds of people have headed for the site to try to catch a glimpse.

Mr Ward said hearing a long-toed stint was so close to Leeds, he had to go and see if he could spot it, especially as he believed it was Yorkshire's first sighting of the bird.

"On seeing it, the hairs were rising on the back of my neck and my first thought was, 'blimey, that's small'," he said.
