STATUS
Migrant and winter visitor, with some non-breeding summering birds. 

ABUNDANCE
Scarce.

HABITAT
Fonder of the shores of large reservoirs than the Green Sandpiper, though also seen on rocky rivers.

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Like the former species has a very long migration period and winter visitors come back early; birds are also present in spring and summer so there are records in every month of the year. 

DISTRIBUTION
Distributed throughout the whole territory.

COMMENTS
There is a record of two birds with suspected breeding behaviour on River Sotillo (on the border between Seville and Badajoz) in May 2009, though breeding was not eventually proven. It has bred on rivers and reservoirs of southern Huelva in recent years.
