Hello,
yes its a Grey Plover. Please note the right strong shape and jizz (enhanced in this picure by the angle, photo is from above). A slight yellow/buff/warm golden hue of the white speckles is within variation for Grey Plover, some are even more warmer/yellow-golden coloured than your bird

The heavy streaking on the underparts/breast of the OP and deeper richer tones indicate 1w.

New juvenile Grey Plovers are also quite golden and can be easily confused with Golden Plover when seen on distant mudflats.

Agree with Pluvialis squatarola :t:



Indeed! 3:)

I think it was obvious I was shortening Grey Plover to GP since that is what we were talking about and not referring to Golden Plover which I wrote in full since it had not yet been mentioned but I take your point it is potentially confusing
