Whimbrel or Hudsonian Curlew

Numenius [phaeopus or hudsonicus] (= Numenius phaeopus) (Linnaeus, C 1758)

The Eurasian whimbrel is a wader in the large family Scolopacidae. It is one of the most widespread of the curlews, breeding across much of subarctic Asia and Europe as far south as Scotland. This species and the Hudsonian whimbrel have recently been split, although some taxonomic authorities still consider them to be conspecific. Source: Wikipedia
