NATURA 2000 - species and habitats

Common sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos):

The common sandpiper utilises banks with gravel and stone areas free of vegetation both to forage and to breed. This striking bird concentrates on gravel and stone because it does not build a nest as such, instead laying its eggs directly in the gravel. As a result of having practically no nesting material and the eggs’ appropriate colouration, the clutch of eggs is practically invisible. This species is on the red list of endangered breeding birds in Styria and Austria as highly endangered.
