newHudsonian Whimbrel at Baldaio, Carballo, A Coruña in early 2009. First recent report for Spain

Introduction 

On 20.1 a bird was seen and photographed at Baldaio, A Coruña (José Luis Fernández Carnero). News were broadcasted in the January 2009 page of this website and in the Rarebirdspain blog. The bird had been seen on 18.1 in the same area (Xosé Manoel Carregal, José Antonio de Souza) but it went unnoticed while carrying out the winter wildfowl count and it was identified after the 20.1 observation. The bird proved elusive during February and March despite some search but good photos could be obtained in early April 2009 and are included here given the interest of the record.

This is the first Spanish record in the 'A' list (birds seen since 1.1.1950) but there could be a previous record from 1879 which has not been verified, neither accepted or forming part of tbe Spanish B list, of a bird hunted in Doñana by Lord Lilford (see this link for a pdf of the original book- Ventura de los Reyes y Proper, "Catálogo de las aves de España, Portugal e Islas Baleares" de 1879-, in Spanish. Contributed by Manolo García Tarrasón)

See a compilation of the photos of the bird below, some in direct comparison of the Eurasian Whimbrel (N.phaeopus phaeopus).
