Ringed, Little Ringed and Kentish Plovers photo ID guide


Three small shorebirds form a confusing group which shares the same habitats. With similar markings of brown and white in winter and immaturity, and black breast-bands while breeding, they can often match each other at any age and season, and are frequently silent, even when flushed – they can pose a year-round conundrum.

No such dilemma for me as far as Kentish Plover goes....I have never seen one in the UK!  Seems a misnomer as I see them everywhere but!

Comparison to Sand Plover is a tough one though when in non breeding plumage.
