The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, June 20, 2016 to Sunday, June 26, 2016:

Area: SA

Date: Saturday, June 18, 2016

Location: Black Point, Y. P.

Double-banded Plover (Charadrius bicinctus) (24) In a flock of 52 shorebirds, 
with 12 Red-capped Plover & 16 overwintering Red-necked Stint.

When disturbed this flock flew onto a band of seaweed, which camouflaged them 
really well. I took photos from a distance, pointing the camera in what I hoped 
was the right spot. The 2 photos are of rather poor quality, but when enlarged 
greatly did allow a count of part of the flock.
