Whimbrel

Passage migrant

It's a passage migrant in spring and autumn.

Migrant

In high summer, that is probably true, but at this time of year they are migrating north and can be found anywhere around the country. Numbers are currently building in the Vale of York, where I am, and where they are studied closely.
