Special Birds: Dotterel

Dotterel Charadrius morinellus are very rare breeders in some remote uplands in Eastern Europe. They are however more commonly seen when on passage in lowland areas. In particular, flocks (aka trips) of several hundred reside on well-grazed grasslands in Hungary from late August to early November.
