Nice one Mike - such graceful birds in flight favourite of the birds

Google tells me that this is Northern lapwing, a 28-31cm long bird with a 67-72cm wingspan, it has rounded wings and a crest and is the shortest-legged of the lapwings. It is mainly black and white, but the back is tinted green.The name lapwing derives from the "lapping" sound its wings make, or the flapping flight. This is a vocal bird in the breeding season, with constant calling as the crazed tumbling display flight is performed by the male.

I was taken by how it's natural colours can make it merge in with its surroundings. Lucky to find both them in residence.
