Common sandpiper photo from Gambia

Common sandpiper, Njau, the Gambia, 8 February 2012

8 February 2012 in the Gambia. Near Njau village. Just before the Egyptian plover landed on the river bank, there was already a common sandpiper there.

This is that common sandpiper.

Common sandpipers nest in Europe and Asia. In winter, they can be found in Africa, some even much further south than the Gambia, like in South Africa. Some winter in southern Asia and Australia.
