Long-billed Plover

Long-billed Plover (Charadrius placidus, 长嘴剑鸻).

Not a rare bird, but not one that is normally found in Changsha! Very briefly it was visible on the shore of the Xiang River between two thick banks of reeds, and then it was off, back on route to wherever it is journeying this summer.
