A medium sized wader, charcterised by ercet stance, moving with short quick steps, interspersed with pauses. Breeds in Alaska, Northern Canada and Siberia in the northern summer, they move into the southern hemisphere for our summer. Most years 30 to 60 are present on Lord Howe Island over summer, and some stay over winter.

Length: 24cm; wingspan: 65cm.
