Nordmann's Greenshank: Sketch and notes from Natural History Museum collection at Tring. The skin is labelled as dating from April, but it appears to be one of the many stolen and re-labelled by Richard Meinertzhagen. It is probably a June or even July bird, based on the fact it has extensively marked underparts and worn scaps with almost no white fringes or notches at all. Note the strong barred rather than spotted character of the underpart markings (which are large in size and small in number) on sides of the chest, lower flanks and belly. It could be that these were acquired by a supplemental moult in very late spring, rather than by wear.
