On July 24th, a Lesser Yellowlegs (Tringa flavipes) was found at Ria de Alvor during a wader count. The bird was feeding with other waders on a flooded area. This observation follows the one of a bird which stayed a few weeks at Paul de Lagos earlier this year (bird on the picture). Since the 2 places are about 5 km apart, it could be the same bird. However, the conditions did not allow a detailed observation of the bird.
This is the 5th sighting of the species at Ria de Alvor. The first one was in 1993 and the last one in 2013.
