With the spate of twitching of the White-rumped Sandpiper at Lake Wollumboola over the past three weeks, there have been quite a few reports of Lesser Sand Plovers there as well.

After I posted on my blog about my trip there, I had an email from another Birding-auser who thought the sand plovers he had seen were Greaters, not Lessers. That crystalised a niggling doubt I had, so I had a closer look at my photos. I've now put up a second post with these photos and conclude that all the sand plovers I saw were in fact Greaters. At the risk of potential embarrassment, I'd love to hear from anyone who'd like to either confirm or shoot down my diagnosis...
