The Kentish Plover on the 14th appears to be a Swinhoe's Plover.

Thx for telling me that. I just thought that Kentish plover were changing plumage.
BTW, some more photos attached.
Photos marked with DC were taken by Mirrorless(M43) DC with 300mm F4 + 1.4x directly while
photos marked with Digiscoping were taken by M43 with 17mm lens coupled with Kowa spotting scope
and so the color of plumage shown differently.
(not sure whether it was another Plover)
