TEMMINCK'S STINT.

TRINGA TENMINCKII.

Page 321. A specimen of this rare stint was shot near Aberdeen by Mr Alexander Mitchell, on 28th August, 1871, and examined by Mr Angus, to whom I am indebted for a notice of the occurrence. Mr Mitchell has since informed me that he shot a second specimen on 4th September, and has obligingly forwarded it for exhibition at a meeting of the Natural History Society of Glasgow while these pages are passing through the press.

THE LITTLE CRAKE.

CREX PUSILLA.

Page 334. Mr J. H. Gurney, jun., informs me (August, 1871), that his father has in his collection a Scottish specimen of this bird; but up to the moment of going to press no further particulars of its capture have reached me.

THE GOOSANDER.

MERGUS MERGANSER.

Page 403.

Mr Harvie Brown writes to me (August 30, 1871) that he is now in a position to state authoritatively that this bird breeds in Scotland—a nest of eggs having been sent to him from the north of Perthshire: the nest was placed in the hollow of an old tree, and the eggs were taken about the 20th of May.

They agree precisely with authenticated eggs of the Goosander already in his collection.

THE GANNET OR SOLAN GOOSE.

SULA ALBA.

Page 458. Gannets with black tails have been observed at St. Kilda. These I suspect to be birds with the last of their immature plumage not yet effaced.
