Range Description

Charadrius javanicus is restricted to Java and the Kangean Islands, Indonesia (BirdLife International 2001). The taxonomic status of this species is extremely unclear and records attributable to it are therefore sparse; nevertheless, it was recently found to be common in southern Madura.Whilst it may prove widespread, its population is likely to be small and declining.
