Common Redshank

is a medium-sized species of shorebird within the family of sandpipers. The Redshank has red legs and a red base of the beak. Its body is otherwise brownish throughout, with lined breast and flanks. When in flight, the lower edge of the wings and the rump can be seen to be white in color. It nests in marshes in the interior or near the shore, wet meadows, etc. In the Czech Republic, it is endemic primarily at lower altitudes (of no more than 620 m above sea level). Since 1960, it was found nesting regularly only in South Bohemia and in South, Central, and Northeast Moravia – elsewhere, it has all but disappeared.
