Common Ringed Plover

Common Ringed Plover, the curious one on the beach, they'd come as close they can to you and fly off. I've stumbled on a nest with eggs by a busy footpath in a field once.

Very common on this side of world as Little Ringed Plovers are over in Miri. Common Ringed Plover is a rarity in Malaysia, though once in a while sighted by our KK/Sabah birding brothers Karim Madoya, Denis Degullacion and others at Lok Kawi. Similar looking species such Malaysian Plover, Kentish Plover are common on Miri Beaches.

The most interesting plover species on Kuala Baram for me is the Malaysian Plover, they actually breed on our beaches and have been recorded breeding in Similajau, Tanjong Batu and Kuala Baram.
