BLACK-FRONTED DOTTEREL

I nearly stepped on this nest which was on a peninsula running out into a lake on a claypan south-east of Punmu. From the illustration in Morcombe it would appear that a Black-fronted Dotterel was the creator of the nest. No bird was noticed so it may be that the nest had been flooded and abandoned.

These were taken below the school at Punmu, 14.09.05
