The Ringed plover Charadrius hiaticula is a small wader found across the Northern Hemisphere. The ringed plover is so named as it has a Black ring or band of feathers around the front of its neck.

It is very similar to the Little ringed Plover Charadrius dubius but adults of the two species can be easily separated as the Little ringed plover has a golden yellow ring around its eye. The Ringed plover does not have this feature.
