Little Stints on their way to Northern Europe in early spring - resting at the Baltic Sea and looking for food. Maybe they even stayed here all the mild winter.
The Little Stint, Calidris minuta (or Erolia minuta), is a very small wader. It breeds in arctic Europe and Asia, and is a long-distance migrant, wintering south to Africa and south Asia. It occasionally is a vagrant to North America and to Australia.
