Common Ringed Plover (1)

Thanks to a tip off from Pan Zhi Yuan, I was able to twitch and add Common Ringed Plover Charadrius hiaticula to my year list locally at nearby Sz Tsau this morning. This was a great relief, as an especially annoying and otherwise 'nailed on' individual had spent the whole of December at Ding Shan, only to disappear completely in January when the new year came around. Unfortunately, the light was all in the wrong place this morning, meaning that I could only manage rather poor record shots of the bird, this despite it actually being quite close.

This was the last of the plovers to get this year, meaning a clean sweep of this 'set'. Hopefully, if it winters, I'll be able to do it more justice photo-wise at some point later on. Above photos taken in Sz Tsau, Tainan City 15/11/16.
