Marsh Sandpiper

Tringa stagnatilis

This summer visitor’s long, straight black bill and long legs separate it from similar looking species.

We first recorded this species in September 2010 while having sundowners at “Red Cliffs” in Ndumo Game Reserve.

A great spot (almost guaranteed) to see this sandpiper in summer is Mkhombo Dam Nature Reserve in the Mpumulanga Province.
