This bird was notably smaller than the accompanying Greater Sand Plovers, and in some ways, with its notably pale collar, was not unlike a Kentish Plover. It has a shortish, blunt-tipped bill, a smallish eye and and a more rounded head than Greater Sand Plver. Note it has a short nail on the bill and blackish legs.
