Double banded plover

The tiny (18cm long) Double banded plover is an autumn and winter visitor- at Lord Howe Island from February to August each year. They breed in New Zealand during summer, and most cross the Tasman Sea to Australia, but around 40 stay at Lord Howe Island each year- best seen at North Beach at low tide, or grassy airstrip verges at other times.
