Plover, Eastern Saudi Arabia
 
I photographed this plover today in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. I think it's a golden plover but can't define it...........can you help?

Thanks in advance,

Adrian

Never easy from one picture, but I reckon the bill is too long and thick for Golden and I can't see any barring on the flanks. I think it's probably a Grey Plover.

A Grey Plover rather (strong looking ...)

Looking very much like a Grey Plover now.
