Caspian Plover - Charadrius asiaticus

Species description

Scarce spring migrant and very rare autumn migrant. In spring seen almost exclusively in Eilat region and Yotvata fields, mainly late March - early May. 

While in 1980's and 1990's small of medium-sized flocks were recorded, nowadays only singles occur. In autumn very rare, mainly in August - September, in Eilat but also elsewhere e.g. Bet Shean Valley.
