Pectoral Sandpiper at Oualidia lagoon

If you are near Oualidia lagoon on the Atlantic coast, take the opportunity to find the Pectoral Sandpiper (Calidris melanotos Bécasseau tacheté) that was seen there on 2 October 2011 by Alain Mathurin and his colleagues. This is the 8th record for Morocco and the 1st since 1999. Many thanks to Alain for this record and for letting us know about it (but I feel sorry that I am too far away). Thanks to Karim Laïdi as well for posting the photograph at: http://gomac.megaplog.com/
