Fri 25megamegaRinged/Semipalmated Plover
Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Beach)
A Ringed/Semipalmated Plover was found roosting/sheltering from rain in the hind-dunes during a monitoring survey of the Worimi Conservation Lands (Stockton Beach) yesterday morning (25/08) by Ann Lindsey, Neil Fraser and others. Whilst details of the location of the bird are still emerging, all that is known at this stage is that it was seen south of the Lavis Lane entry point. Note that access is 4wd only and permits are required to enter and access the beach. (Moderators Note 27/08: the identification appears to be leaning towards Common Ringed Plover, though additional images from the original obs will be scrutinised. Several unsuccessful attempts have been made to relocate the bird on 26/08 & 27/08. MR)
