Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large bizarre shorebird of open stony heathland and dry grassland. Active mainly at night and spends the day sitting inconspicuously; thus, overlooked easily. Distinctive appearance, with rather large size, streaky brown plumage, big yellow eyes, and thick yellow legs; black-and-white wing pattern shows in flight. Loud piping calls given mainly at night may suggest curlew or oystercatcher.
