Calidris ferruginea (Pontoppidan, 1763).
Curlew Sandpiper
Calidris ferruginea is a small wader with a length of 19,5–21 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 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.

Hello Christodoulos,
excellent macro bird,good details species,regards..

Hi Christodoulos,
The word "fantastic" was already on my mind before I saw Samaran's critique. The sharpness is truly fantastic and 1/2500th second shutter speed at f8 seems an unusual combination so I think the light must have been very bright. Excellently well done.

A great picture of this bird! I admire the control of the light, white color and sharpness that you have taken pictures to birds like this. The result is an exquisite picture worthy of admiration for the naturalness achieved. Your photos are always challenging me and an encouragement to improve my photos in the field.
Thank you for sharing it and congratulation. Un saludo.
