My question is about darker prantincole between other birds. Is this is a black-winged pratincole or young collared prantincole. The pictures was made in Pomorie lake - Bulgaria on 21.09.2021. Black-winged prantincole was observed on the same place few days ago on 17 and 18 september.

It could well be- the darker plumage suggesting that, especially as one was confirmed there. However it isn't a great photo for a 100% conclusive one.
