Eurasian Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus)
Eurasian Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus) monotypic
Plovers and Lapwings (Charadriidae)
Kalvebod Fælled (Vestamager), Amager, Denmark
Too poor photos to judge age from, but in the field the wings looked sharp and contrasting like to be expected on a young bird.
Found on the flats from southern observations tower on the dike, in direction toward the middle tower. Got chased away by a Northern Lapwing, but later refound from the middle tower, hiding from the wind behind the rock.
Rare migrant in eastern Denmark, and my first on Amager. I found it.
