Pluvialis squatarola

Sci: Pluvialis squararola,  No: Tundralo,  Eng: Grey plover,  It: Pivieressa

Dear All,
The "Tundralo" (Grey plover) nests on the tundra and migrate south in the autumn.
This one was seen on Herdla near Bergen on September 16. It was the only of its kind, but seemed to be in happy company with the "Heilo" (Golden plover).

You hear from me next month!
