Whimbrel - SmåspoveNumenius phaeopus
Småspov - Lille Regnspove - Pikkukuovi - Courlis corlieu

Whimrel are one of the commonest and regular waders during the spring migration, with a peak in the first half of May. The species is rather more infrequenct during the autumn migration.

The occurrence pattern of this species at Utsira is very similar both in timing and numbers.

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