Grey Plover – 1980s winter

Pluvialis squatarola – CWTIAD LLWYD – Winter visitor and passage migrant.

The BTO winter atlas showed that Grey Plovers were present in coastal and estuarine 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square.  The darkest blue represents 7-65 birds, up to 65 being noted at the Furzenips.
