[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I twitched this bird at Spiros beach, Larnaca, Cyprus. Terek sandpiper is a scarce passage migrant only occasionally recorded.
According to Birdlife Cyprus, before 2012 there where only 20 records in Cyprus. This year apart from this bird there was also a record in Paphos.

Εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία ενός πολύ σπάνιου πουλιού! Καλή σύνθεση, όμορφα χρώματα και εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια.

Hallo Filippos
Wow is the 1st word that enters my mind looking at this super, super, super sharp photo. Another WOW! Everything I look at in this image is absolutely wonderful! This image is so clear, it looks as if it was send to the dry cleaners, and is now spick and span. A well deserved A + and more. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
