Little Ringed Plover

Once a very rare spot, the Little Ringed Plover has become something of a success story in recent years. Although still almost exclusively confined to the reservoirs and gravel pits of England and a few small areas of Wales, UK breeding numbers are now around the 1000 pair mark.
These beautiful little Waders arrive on our shores in March and have usually bred and migrated by early July.
