Greater Sandplover juvenile
Is mid-June the typical time for the first southbound juvenile Greater Sandplovers to start appearing in the Middle East?
The attached image shows a juvenile GSP photographed in Qatar on 13 June this year. Given the nearest breeding grounds are some six to eight hundred miles away, and the species typically starts breeding in mid-April, this appears to be an early record. Or maybe not! I'd be interested to know of other observations of juvenile GSPs in the ME region at this time of year.
