Golden plover Pluvialis apricaria

Not noticed the red on the lapwing back before, showed up quite clearly when they suddenly took off but was more brownish in normal flight. Assume this is just the way the light has caught the feathers and is like the iridescence of the green and purple on the 'black' feathers?
