The Senegal Plover aka The Senegal Lapwing (Vanellus ligubris) is a small bird, 9.5" (24cm), although one of the larger Plovers. It has a slightly larger 'cousin', which looks very similar, the Black Winged Plover (aka Black-winged Lapwing).
Identification can be difficult, but the Senegal Plover has the smaller white forehead and yellow orbital ring around its eyes, with black legs. The Black Winged Plover has a purplish-red orbital ring and dull red legs.
