In the environment depicted in the description of the spoonbilled sandpiper there were thousands of birds which would fly in enormous flocks of hundreds of specimens between shallow water reservoirs. The same was with great knots, Eurasian curlews and the three species of plovers. Sometimes there were so many of them that it was hard to choose what to photograph. The birds, sitting peacefully on dams, often cut the distance to us significantly. Apart from plovers we were approached by stilts, great knots and sandpipers… It’s a pity that in such an intriguing place we did not have a whole day for photographing. Especially that the people working with the service of reservoirs for obtaining salt made the task easier for us. The birds, accustomed to humans’ presence, were not so skittish and if we had stayed there for a few days we would have had many interesting encounters combined with taking not less interesting pictures.

What fate’s irony to photograph a snowy plover near a puddle in the Gobi Desert. Well, I hadn’t expected such an encounter and it was another surprise for me during this Mongolian expedition. Although the snowy plover already has is gallery on my website after my visit to Thailand, in Thailand, however, the birds were in their rest plumage and I had difficulties to identify the birds, especially that there were thousands of them. Here, on the Gobi Desert there was just one bird and what’s more, it was in its breeding plumage. I have rebuilt the gallery.
