Noting this now: Alcids are not included here, they were already done on their own thread. Covered here are the rest of the Charadriidae, the sandpipers, plovers, dikkops, jacanas, stilts, avocets, oystercatchers, buttonquail, terns, gulls, skimmers, and allies. This proved a very interesting one, as many species are very poorly represented on the forum at all apart from the big year posts. A large number of species so far I can find only one or two holders. Many of the shorebirds have no or very few photos at all in the gallery. I suspect holders are very much incomplete here, additional information much appreciated! As normal information used is two years or newer.
