Common Ringed Plover (Charadrius hiaticula)

Looking for White-faced Plover at the beach that possibly the bird appear here at Kota Kinabalu. Upon waiting, spotted this Common Ringed Plover and as usual always one bird on the beach. The plover this time has more distinctly distiguishable orange color from the bill base to about half of its bill length. Last seen it was only slight orange appear at the very base of the bill. This bird has been staying here very long already. A male breeding bird. Happy birding.
