Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large shorebird with a very long down-curved bill. Told from Whimbrel by much longer bill, less distinct eyebrow. In flight has a completely plain brownish back (Eurasian Curlew and Whimbrel both have a white V on the lower back). Its two-note "cur-lew" call is very different than the repeated ringing notes of Whimbrel.
