Red-capped Plovers

The Red-capped Plovers are in breeding plumage again, and we witnessed a bit of argy-bargy on the beach yesterday. There were three birds, an adult pair and a juvenile male, foraging on the sand, when suddenly the adult male flew at the younger male who was apparently having ideas about the adult female. In a moment all was calm again, and I caught some lovely shots of them in the diffuse light.
