Grey Plover - TundraloPluvialis squatarola
Kustpipare - Strandhjejle - Tundrakurmitsa - Pluvier argente

Grey plover are regualr in small numbers during autumn migration, although very large numbers have been recorded from time to time. The species is also a rare spring migrant, although I have yet to record the species at this time of year.

The occurrence pattern of this species at Utsira is very similar both in timing and numbers.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Grey Plover have been recorded and the green one (numbers on right hand axis) shows the maximum numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
