October 2020: New species for Niger: Eurasian Oystercatcher15 Oct 2020 [JBr]
On 12 September 2020 a Eurasian Oystercatcher was discovered at Goudel ricefields by Benoit Forget. See the pictures at https://www.wabdab.org/db/species?79082. This is the first record of this species for Niger and probably for entire inland West Africa! The bird was still there two weeks later.
