The Spotted Redshank or Tringa erythropus breeds across northern Scandinavia and northern Asia and migrates south to the Mediterranean, the southern British Isles, France, tropical Africa. Wintering in tropical Asia, it is a welcome visitor for us here to watch and observe. Sometimes it wanders in Australia and North America and hoping that they travel that far as a big flock, in numbers, there is strength.

Finding this bird in a flock of Godwits, Sandpipers, Terns, or with the Plovers, it can be difficult. One thing that one has to pay attention to are the legs. Viewing into a Field Scope or Binoculars, can be helpful and easy to identify. Watching this bird in between all the Godwits can be difficult to understand its behavior. It would have been easy to understand its habits and behavior watching it together with its flock.
