Sand Plovers in Darwin
Fri, 16 Mar 2001 07:32:29 +0000
Hilary Thompson and I spotted these waders with 'intermediate' beaks back
in the 1980's. My memory isn't infallible but I do remember the
conversation he and I had about them at the time, and I'm pretty sure
they were Lessers. And yes, I can tell the difference between Lesser
Sand Plover and Greater, and so can Hilary.
Hilary is away at the moment but when I return I'll ask him to email you
any notes he made.
