Stripped bolt

Changed the pads on my disc brakes today (105 hydro). The rear caliper was v straightforward, bolt unclipped, unscrewed, old pads out, new pads in - job done. Went to do the front and the screwdriver has striped the head off the bolt which seems to have seized with dirt.

Can order a new bolt online easily enough but any suggestions on how to get the old one out? Needle Nose pliers would be my first thoughts....
