Common Sandpiper - Strandsnipe -Actitis hypoleucos
Drillsnäppa - Mudderklire - Rantasipi  - Chevalier guignette

Common Sandpiper are largely seen on autumn migration at Skogsøy, with the majority seen from mid July to end of September. Most are seen on the shorelines rather than on direct migration, although they can be heard passing at night.

It would seem that this species is noted in much larger numbers at Utsira.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Common Sandpiper have been recorded and the green one (numbers on right hand axis) shows the maximum numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
