An Injured Lonely Lesser Sand Plover

An injured Lesser Sand Plover
A portion of the left leg was missing

November 7 2010. Yesterday I spotted an injured Lesser Sand Plover at Batu Kawan mudflats. It has a broken left leg. It was probably injured during the south-bound migration and could not further its journey with the original group and ended up stranded here. It was a sad situation, I wonder will it survive. 

How miserable ?

You never know, birds can be quite resilient when missing a leg. I guess it'll come down to how readily it can catch prey.
