They spend the summer in NZ, breeding there, resplendent in their breeding plumage with the double bands. The higher one is a sharp black band across the throat and the lower one is a broad chestnut band across the breast. The non breeding plumage is traces [a tab Morcombe] of either band at the sides as seen in the image. They behaved as per RCPs with the abrupt stop-start, run-pause movements.
Double-banded Plover -- another in background.
Good example of the band tabs.
