'Little' Ringed Plovers

A nice selection of Tundra Ringed Plovers at Derek's this morning. The local Ringo's really didn't like them though and chased them all over the shop.
The variability in their plumage is quite startling. The top bird was in almost summer plumage, with the next bird down still quite wintery, with another inbetween. I presume tundrae moult later than hiaticula.
