Kentish Plover recorded again after decades
A juvenile Kentish Plover was seen and photographed on the rocks at the western end of the runway by Trevor Hammond. This is the first time the species has been recorded again in Gibraltar after several decades.
Kentish Plovers used to nest on the runway back in the late 1990s, and the tiny chicks could be seen running along the edge scurrying like a little fluff ball when planes were about to land. Trevor was lucky to capture several photos of the bird, which spent the afternoon of the 11th September along with two Ringed Plovers and a Common Sandpiper.
