CommentOften on the shore with a few mates, I find them quite curious as they come closer for a quick look before moving on. This picture shows how the Greater Sand Plover differs from their lesser counterpart by the size of the bill. The measurement from the tip to the base of the bill is greater than the measurement from the rear of the bill to the back of the eye.
