Whimbrel, also known as the Eurasian whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus) can be found around the Fuerteventura coast. This fairly large wader reaches a length of up to 47 centimetres and has a wingspan of up to 90 centimetres. They are mainly greyish brown, with a long curved bill with a kink rather than a smooth curve.

Similar in appearance to the curlew the whimbrel is smaller, its bill is shorter and more abruptly bent at the tip, it has shorter legs and darker plumage than the curlew.
