Status of Vanellus gregarius(Sociable Lapwing (Plover))

I just heard that in a recent survey in the breeding area of the speices only 200 pairs were found .

Is this so?Does anyone have more info?


I heard the info from someone who is high in our birding circles.






































PS.On a side note...2 young Slender-billed Curlew were seen in my country for 2004... .

(This is info is again from the same guy.)

Yes Dimi

true about Sociable Plover, probalby due to mosaic-ing of the habitat preventing birds from joining pre-migratory groups and then getting lost

see BirdLife International site

This would be a shame, what beautiful birds they are.

Here is a link to the one in the database.

There was a good posting on the UK400 website from a guy who claimed 1200 SP's in Turkey in Sept this year.He also filmed them and although the quality isnt great the gen does seem authentic

Thanx for the info Mark.That really is good news.

Cheers,

Dimitris.

Perhaps they have moved into another area.

The White-tailed Lawping has started breeding in Ronanis and the surrounding area. So maybe the S.Lawping is doing the same?(hopefully)

Where is Ronanis, is it in your neck of the woods?Just got the London Sociable Plover decided it was a must if the recent population trends continue.The views were distant but ok.

dimi, it would be nice if white-tailed lapwing still bred in the dobrudja, but the last pair bred in 2003. so the "invasion" lasted exact 3 years...
