Dahu Beach, Haifeng, Guangdong 06-05-12.
Very interesting change on the beach. Most of the wintering breeding plumage Kentish Plover (unidentified sp.) had apparently moved on when the Swinhoe's Plover returned. There were still 8 juveniles which are now 5 weeks old with 12 adults. These birds will probably stay during the Summer and breed again as I noticed several birds of this unidentified Kentish Plover species amongst the Swinhoe's Plover last year. Unfortunately the very heavy rains...
