Oriental Pratincole

Oriental Pratincole

Glareola maldivarum

This Pratincole was a real challenge to identify at the time. DNA did the job, and the bird was finally accepted by the Swedish RBC some years after the discovery of the bird.
The bird was seen at Ängsnäset, Falsterbo, Skåne from July 2nd until October 6th 2001.
The bird was filmed by Timo Samanen on July 3rd and August 21st.
