Charadrius mongolus Pallas, 1776


Charadrius mongolus Pallas, 1776   . Lesser Sand-Plover

Observed once along the coast, but difficult to esti- mate relative abundance due to the paucity of time we spent in appropriate habitat. Identification: Plover-like bird, with relatively short bill compared to head length, ruling out Greater Sand-Plover, which would be a vagrant to the area.
