I am an inlander and unfamiliar with migratory shorebirds.  This plover
was at Congo, apparently a haunt for both Grey and Pacific Golden
Plovers.  I refrained from flushing it to see the underwing diagnostic
pattern.  On-line photos of the two seem contradictory.  Field guides
mention the larger head of the Grey which this bird seems to have but it
also has colour.  Any expert opinion welcome.
