"A wilsonbeckasin from the american continent have been observed in Sweden for the first time."
"the Premiere is attention-grabbing because the bird has travelled vast distances to get here."
"On Sunday was a wilsonbeckasin for the first time be screened in Sweden, specifically in a grantopp outside of the Way in the north of Uppland, writes Upsala nya Tidning."
"the Species has been observed in our neighbouring country Finland during the years 2008-2010. But until now, no one in Sweden has seen the smoke of the brunspräckliga vadaren with its elongated beak."
"– It is a species that very rarely go wrong. There is no klimatologisk explanation for the fact that it has come here, but there are likely to be chance, " says Niklas Aronsson on Birdlife Sweden to the TT."
"on average see one or two new species in Sweden of the year, according to Niklas Aronsson, who, however, stresses that wilsonbeckasinens visit is an almost unlikely event."
"– The birds that is unusual in Sweden will almost always be from the east because we have the land mass in that direction. In this case, we have a bird that is found in north America, and breeding in south America. It has flown a very long distance, either across the Atlantic or from the other direction through Siberia, " says Aronsson."
"the Call has been analyzed"
"the Finding must be approved by the Birdlife Sweden's raritetskommitté at a meeting in the fall to be official. Recordings of the bird's vocalization analysed with the help of a sonogram indicates that this is indeed a wilsonbeckasin, because it has proved to be identical with the recordings from the species ' breeding grounds. Even photographs to support the claim."
"– It is only then we know if you will consider skådningen is sufficiently well documented, it is always a little extra fussy at one constitutes a new record. But at the moment it looks very good, " says Aronsson."
"Non-endangered shorebirds from the family - who live in north America and breed in south America, with the Latin name Gallinago delicata."
"Is closely related with enkelbeckasinen which, among other things, live in Sweden."
"mainly Feed on the larvae, but also on crustaceans, worms and molluscs."
"Gets around 26-28 inches long with a wingspan of 40 to 47 centimetres."
