Kentish or White-faced Plovers? Singapore Dec 2021 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Need help with the ID of these Plovers. Are these Kentish or White-faced Plovers?

I'm thinking photos 1, 4 and 5 are White-faced Plovers due to the extensive white lores and brow. The bird in photo 5 seemed paler than the other birds and there seemed to be more mottling on the feathers. Hope I have not misidentified a Malaysian Plover (resident at this site).

Photos 2 and 3 are Kentish?

Help much appreciated.
