Kentish Plover is correct. They are found in the UAE, but there is a lot of confusion regarding that on Wikipedia.
I agree with Leuba that this looks like a Kentish plover. The Kentish plover is actually found in the UAE. See the following map from EOL as well as the second link:http://eol.org/pages/1049344/mapshttp://www.arthurgrosset.com/mebirds/ken...
Leuba, thanks for the ID :)I will upload a few more pics of this bird. Its a beautiful and restless plover picking on leftovers at the beach.Going though the link, I guess you've ID it correct and it shouldn't be anywhere near this part of this world
InsanelyPositive, You might have something interesting here! This bird might be a Kentish Plover -(Charadrius alexandrinus). What's it doing in the Arabian Peninsula ?? - please see referencehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentish_Plo...I hope someone with expertise in this area confirms this...
