Little Ringed Plover - Probably Breeding

09/06/2011 – Dhahran Hills

Just outside our house is a large drainage channel which is always running with a small amount of water used for irrigation of the playing fields behind. Today as I was just about to go out birdwatching I heard a Little Ringed Plover calling from the ditch and took a few photographs of the bird. It was calling and trying to draw my attention, so I assume it had young nearby. I did not want to disturb the bird so did not make any attempt to check but will look in a few days time when the young will be bigger.
