Purple Sandpiper - FjæreplyttCalidris maritima
Skärsnäppa - Sortgrå Ryle - Merisirri  - Becasseau violet

Purple Sandpiper are genrally not seen on direct migration, but usually resting or feeding on one of the many small islands - usually during calm weather. The majority of records are in the second half of February (migrants arriving?) and from mid October - end of November.

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