Common Ringed Plover - SandloCharadrius hiaticula
Större Strandpipare - Stor Præstekrave- Tylli - Grand Gravelot

Ringed Plover is a regular migrant in small numbers, largely in the autumn. Odd ones and twos can be seen on the shores but the vast majority are seen flying past. The species is undoubtedly under recorded as many waders pass too far out to allow for positive identification. 

The occurrence pattern of this species at Skogsøy is very similar both in timing and numbers. The same pattern is also observed at Stag Rocks, Northumberland in the UK (see link below).

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