RBA: SNOWY PLOVER in Richmond - May 1st

At 8:10 am on May 1-2021, Simon Valdez-Juarez found an adult Snowy Plover at Iona Regional Park. The bird was walking along the beach sitting on logs, north of the washrooms. The bird was present for at least 10 mins. 

*The bird was not relocated, despite multiple observers looking*
