Pectoral Sandpiper at Vourkari Bay, Athens

The Pectoral Sandpiper is a rare vagrant to Greece. So far, there have been fewer than 20 confirmed records of the species.

This year, an individual was sighted at Vourkari Bay, a very important wetland, 40 km west of Athens.

 
The bird was very tame and did not seem to bother at the groups of birdwatchers/photographers that visited the spot (a seasonal freshwater pool within a barely legal settlement). 

 
This is just the 3rd record for Athens and, most probably, it won't be the last!
