Common Snipe Gallinago gallinago
The species occurs irregularly in smaller numbers, probably annually. Most observations are from singles or a few individuals from spring migration in May. Some of these individuals appear to be staying in Svalbard during the month of June. There are two recordings from early spring, on March 11th and April 18th, respectively. There are no autumn observations, nor suspicion of breeding attempts.
