Nice shot Ed.
They have such fantastic colour tones in their plumage when lit by the sunlight.

A Slimbridge Lapwing, how very interesting. "How do they differ from any other species?"

A great image you certainly manage to capture a few varied species from Slimbridge Ed. Look forward to see many more as the season progresses.
