Wader Parc naturel régional de corseWho am I ?

You have probably heard my powerful voice at dusk or at night, during the spring and summer, especially if you live towards the eastern plains. I am a very discrete and shy wader, mainly dwelling in the grazed, dry meadows and in vineyards. This bird is quite unknown in Corsica. It was thought that there were only a few couples on the island. However, surveys held in 2009-2011 were to hold quite a surprise: there were around 150 couples. The results (numbers and distribution), were brought out in a monograph published in October 2015 – this is the most complete monograph to date, about this species (Occhione) in Italy and Corsica.
