Leucistic White-fronted Plover at Cape Point

Margaret Maciver photographed a leucistic White-fronted Plover at Cape Point back in 2008. Here’s her photo and note.

Leu WF Plover Cape Point Sept 088274 reduced

I found this leucistic White-fronted Plover at Olifanstbos near the Thomas Tucker wreck in September 2008. It was a very pretty bird, and seemed to be accepted by the other Whitefronted Plovers running around on the beach!

Thanks Margaret.
