Calidris ferruginea (Pontoppidan 1763).
Curlew Sandpiper

Calidris ferruginea is a small wader with a length of 19,521 cm (Family Scolopacidae)
It is only slightly larger than Dunlin but has longer down-curved bill, longer neck and legs and a white rump.
The breeding adult has patterned dark grey upperparts and brick-red underparts. In winter it is pale grey above and white below, and shows an obvious white supercilium. Juveniles have a grey and brown back, a white belly and a peach-coloured breast.
Calidris ferruginea breeds on the tundra of Arctic Siberia. It is strongly migratory, wintering mainly in Africa, but also in south and southeast Asia and in Australasia. It is a vagrant to North America.

In Cyprus Calidris ferruginea is a common passage migrant.
