If anyone sees one with coloured rings let me know the details, there's a ringing programme going on.

And if anyone from Helm is reading this, could we have..Plovers of the World? R Hathaway, Lewington, et al. It's about time that the Plovers had an update all of their own.

Have never seen Sociable but I have seen lots of the African Plovers and they are just stunning....as is our Green Plover.
