(7) Barcelona. There was a juvenile at Maresma de les Filipines, Viladecans, Delta del Llobregat, Barcelona on 11.9 (Quique Carballal et al). This is positively a diffente bird from (3) according to plumage characters (e.g. mantle pattern, F. López pers.com.). See an entry in Quique's blog on this bird here. Perhaps this same bird was seen again on 14.9 (Álex Mascarell via ornitho.cat) while on 15.9 there was again a Pectoral Sandpiper at the same marsh (Armand Ramal, Ricard Gutiérrez) but it looks a bit different to the individual seen on 11.9: no dark line in the lower part of left supercilium, different shape of loral area and apparently larger size. While these circumstances are solved, conservative analysis considers these all as the same individual. See two photos and a video below plus two thumbnails here (R.Gutiérrez).
