Article summary

During the post-breeding migration of 2004, the Dotterel stopped in exceptional numbers in the large plains of Wallonia. This phenomenon had already been noted in 1994. It seems to be related to unusual atmospheric circumstances, in particular with persistent low pressures located on the crossed area together with abundant rains which encourages the birds to make stopover in landscapes that resemble the nesting biotopes.
