Lapwing chicks

Observed: 6th June 2011 By: Smith742Smith742’s reputation in Birds

Over the last few months Lapwings have been in numbers of about 6 - 10 and nesting on wasteground beside the Manchester Ship Canal at Pomona Dock. I believe the RSPB are aware of them as they were taking photos a few weeks back. I have seen two broods, both with about 3 chicks - however, there are many magpies so unaware if the chicks survived.
