Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus) Reported from East Iran

The Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus) is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. It's not bird you can usually observe on migration pathways in Iran. We are in search of Curlews this year and the search has brought us to some rare species and we've been able to spot, record and log it's occurrence in one of the eastern passage sites.
