Common Ringed Plover (LRP has no white wing bar) well it does have a very faint one but it wouldn't show up so clearly as this bird's does.

Also I haven't yet heard of any LRPs back in the country yet (summer visitor) though the first birds will be with us soon...

Ditto to Common Ringed Plover; it has a muddy bill, which is why the usual bright orange bill base isn't showing :t:

+1 for Common Ringed Plover. In addition to what's been said above, LRP typically have a narrower breast band at the center and a contrasting eye-ring would be visible as well.

Nothing to add to the above but it's a lovely shot, captures the bird beautifully.
