In pursuit of Little ringed plover

In pursuit of Little ringed plover (Charadrius dubius). 

At the end of August, the migration of birds from north to south begins, where they will spend the winter. 

My friends and I went to one of the places on Via Pontica, where the birds rest and feed during the migration. 

Here we came across several Little ringed plover. 

This is a migratory bird that nests with us on all beaches on the Black Sea coast near fresh water. 

This bird is slightly larger than a starling. 

Its color makes it difficult to notice on the shore where it feeds. 

It feeds on hard-winged insects and their larvae, crustaceans, snails, worms, small mussels, seeds and other small aquatic animals.
