Limicola falcinellus (Pontoppidan, 1763)
Broad-billed Sandpiper

I think that this is the first photo of Limicola falcinellus in TN

Limicola falcinellus is a small wader 15-18 cm in the family Scolopacidae.
It breeds in Arctic northern Europe and Siberia, wintering in easternmost Africa and through south and south-east Asia to Australasia.

In Cyprus it is a scarce passage migrant.

Chris, this migrant stopping over in Cyprus and giving you the opportunity to shoot it is an outstandingly beautiful wader from distant lands. Needless to say, you have captured it in your immaculate professional manner with superb focus and with razor sharp details on its plumage.
Congratulations for posting its maiden picture on TN!
We are grateful to you for sharing it with us.
