Charadrius leschenaultii Lesson, 1826
Greater Sand Plover

Charadrius leschenaultii is a small plover (family Charadriidae) with a length of 19-22 cm. Breeding males have grey backs and white underparts. The breast, forehead and nape are chestnut, and there is a black eye mask. The female is duller, and winter and juvenile birds lack the chestnut, apart from a hint of rufous on the head. Legs are greenish and the bill black.
It breeds in the semi-deserts of Turkey and eastwards through Central Asia. It is migratory wintering on sandy beaches in east Africa, south Asia and Australasia. It is a rare vagrant in western Europe.

In Cyprus Charadrius leschenaultii is a passage migrant and a winter visitor in small numbers.

Hello Christodoulos,
lovely species and excellent photo,regards..

Wonderful definition of this Charadrius leschenaultii foreground. The background is itself a wonderful composition with other samll plover in the background with the foam seething with drops in the air, and a leaden blue sea that is projected in the top of the box. The projected dynamics, marine freshness you can smell, the look of Atena lend to small prey capture some birds, all form an artistic and documentary narrative both a valuable whole. Congratulations, Chris!

Hello Christodoulos,
An outstanding shot with best details,clarity and lovely composition,remarkable dynamism and beautiful colours scheme.
