The redshank is an abundant and widespread wading bird on coasts but numbers breeding on farmland are declining, due to drainage of farmland.

Identification & Voice:

A medium-sized wading bird with longish red legs and a long, straight bill.  It is grey-brown above and in flight they are the only British wader with a broad white bar across the trailing edge of the wing.  It has a musical ''tuuu'' and ''tu-hu-hu'' call.
