The birds present during the study period were the Two Banded Plover Charadrius
falklandicus (Latham), the American Golden Plover Pluvialis dominica (Muller), the Red Knot Calidris canutus (Linnaeus), the Lesser Yellowlegs Tringa flavipes (Gmelin), the American Oystercatcher Haematopus palliatus Temminck, and the Kelp Gull Larus dominicanus (Lichtenstein).
An early arrival of eight Little Ringed Plover Charadrius dubius was observed on 10 August 1993 (Sebastian 1993), and the only recent one for West Kalimantan.

Piping Plovers (Charadrius melodus), Snowy Plovers (Charadrius alexandrinus) and other small Charadrius plovers were uncommon, occurring mainly on high mudflats and algal flats before these were covered with glasswort (Salicornia bigelovii).
The modest peak numbers of small Charadrius plovers were expected, but the failure of many small plovers to winter in any plots was somewhat unexpected.
