Whimbrel - Småspove - Numenius phaeopus

Whimbrel are a passage migrant only at Stag Rocks with usually less than 5 present; they are regualr in the spring from the end of April and throughout May. The return migration brings birds to Stag Rocks from mid July onwards, although the majority are noted in August. .

The record count during the period I counted waders there is 11 individuals on 23 July 1990.
