The case of historical breeding of Black-Bellied Plover (Pluvialis squatarola) in Central Europe


Black-Bellied Plover (Pluvialis squatarola), is a species breeding in the arctic tundra; in Europe only in Siberian peninsulas on the Russian territory. There is not enough evidence about its historical breeding in Central Europe. Jan Pícha discovered the breeding of Black-Bellied Plover somewhere in Budějovice basin in south Bohemia, possible in the years 1906-1926, possible on the ponds Dvořiště or Volešek. He wrote about in to M. Záleský (visited) and J. Jirsík (in correspondence), and this report has been totally forgotten. Quite approved is Píchaʼs record of Spotted Redshankʼs (Tringa erythropus) breeding; Píchaʼs personality and reliability ensure the correctness of his report. Mating behaviour of Black-Bellied Plover, recorded in South Bohemia also in 1993.
