Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to fairly common migrant in spring and autumn, between Arctic breeding grounds and African winter grounds. Found in fresh and brackish wetland habitats. Occurs locally in flocks; elsewhere singles travel with flocks of Dunlin and other waders. Note very small size and bright rusty orange head and breast in breeding plumage. Juvenile neatly patterned above, often with narrow white stripes or "braces" down the back.
