Thanks for all your comments and votes yesterday, this beauty I spotted at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, it was not in an enclosure so do not think it was captive unless the wings are clipped, I have tried to identify but failed. Thanks to Martin for identity.

V2 for me for the detail. I haven't a clue about the species either, but as long as it knows there isn't a problem.

Looks like from the crested plover family, maybe a lapwing, but which type I cannot deduce - a cross between a Northern, a Southern, and a red-wattled!!

Perhaps a Swales Lapwing GrinGrin

I would think that it is some kind of plover similar to our lapwing. A beautiful bird. Andy
