The Lapwing (vanellus vanellus)
One of my all time favourite birds. I love the beautiful iridescent colours of the plumage and the very attractive crest on the head. Will be seen as possibly a lone bird or often in great flocks. Sadly numbers are suggested to be declining of late.
Hope you will enjoy looking.
Many thanks for the generous attention given to the Jay and particular thanks to Sylvis (toecali) Dave (johnjoe 58) joline and Phil ( phillip H)
Apologies for missing any of your recent shots but I have been away for a break for the past week. Will catch up as soon as I can.
