The grey plover is also called the black-bellied plover because in breeding plumage the underparts are black. The left upper photo showing transition to breeding plumage (Jangwani Salt Pans, 4-17) is courtesy of Riaan Marais; right upper & 4th row (Pangani, 2-11), Valéry Schollaert; the single flight photo, Saadani (12-14), Per Holmen; and the trio in flight, Dr. Louis A. Hansen. The other photos were taken at Pembe Abwe (10-06).
