Kentish Plover [alexandrinus, nihonensis or seebohmi]

Charadrius alexandrinus [alexandrinus, nihonensis or seebohmi] (= Charadrius alexandrinus) Linnaeus, 1758

The Kentish plover is a small cosmopolitan shorebird of the family Charadriidae that breeds on the shores of saline lakes, lagoons, and coasts, populating sand dunes, marshes, semi-arid desert, and tundra. Both male and female birds have pale plumages with a white underside, grey/brown back, dark legs and a dark bill, however additionally the male birds also exhibit very dark incomplete breast bands, and dark markings either side of their head, therefore the Kentish plover is regarded as sexually dimorphic Source: Wikipedia
