plover + small shorebird ID (Greece) (1 Viewer)


Active member
I saw these in August of 2020 in Epanomi lagoon, near Thessaloniki. Maybe not the best time for shorebirds, but there were a few around.
If you know what any of these are, please specify the number of the picture!
1 and 2 is the same individual, I think kentish plover? But not 100% sure
3 some kind of plover
4 unknown plover again
5 and 6 for the small one on the left I would say maybe kentish, and the other two I have no clue (sandpipers??? shanks??)
7 this one is hard to spot, I didnt see it the first time either, but I think it is a little ringed plover in flight? Again, I am not certain about any of these

Thank you! : ) (I should do more studying next time I go for shorebirds, because I was really unprepared in august, and I still am)
