Male Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus)

By DerekL  
Thank you for all of the comments/votes for my previous upload of a Female Dotterel, much appreciated.
Here is a Male Dotterel, taken at The Great Orme, Conwy, North Wales, UK 29/04/2019.

The Male is much plainer than the female and takes on the role of incubating and raising the chicks, whilst the Female goes off and
mates with another Male.
