Description:

Breaking News: Greater Sand Plover in Swakopmund.

Summary / Notes:

On Tuesday 4 January 2011 I received a call from Mark Boorman telling me of a Greater Sand Plover that he had located at the Mile 4 Saltworks. I searched for the bird twice a day but to no avail. On Saturday afternoon when I was about to leave the Saltworks Mark arrived with a couple of birders, amongst them Shaun Overmeyer who was at the time taking care of the sararebirdnews site during the absence of Trevor Hardaker. I arranged with them to call me should they be so lucky as to see the bird. I could not believe my luck when my phone rang and they told me that the bird was sitting literally in front of their car. I was out in a flash but in the meantime a territorial Whitefronted Plover chased off this rare bird and it moved to a little island in one of the evaporation ponds.
