Hudsonian Whimbrel

Hudsonian Whimbrel, Pagham Harbour, West Sussex.

Only the 12th record of this Mega Wader since 1974.

This life tick goes nicely with the Paddyfield Warbler last Friday at Blakeney Point.

The following images are a photographic record in chronological order of a trip to the Picos de Europa Mountains in NW Spain in late May and early June 2015.

Just under a hundred Bird Species were recorded including on a personal note three target Birds----Wallcreeper, White-winged Snowfinch and Alpine Accentor.

We were based in the village of Espinama close to the Cable Car access to the high Mountains at Fuente De. Tours, both North and South, of the High peaks were made once the Target Birds had been seen.
