I think the bill is heftier than an AMGP, and I remember that @Melierax said something about the undertail coverts being a good field mark. Don't want to misquote...

Yep I said that. Only works for adult birds. The bill on this one looks pretty slight but the second photos definitely doesn't look like golden-plover to me. Just looking at Sibley's, the top of the tail in BBPL is starkly black and white whereas in golden plovers it's kinda buffy. Not sure if that's reliable but based on that this bird is a BBPL.
