These pictures illustrate a range of plumages and sizes of Ringed Plovers as they are a mixture of the races hiaticula and tundrae. According to the date, flocks of Ringed Plovers passing through East Anglia in mid-May should be the race tundrae. However, there is also a sizable proportion of hiaticula. These birds were from a recent influx of about 30 ringed Plovers to Welney. Apart from helping with identifying these birds, Richard Millington tells me that there have been similar mixed flocks at Cley (thank you Richard). There is a small local-breeding population of hiaticula Ringed Plovers.
