Today's Saving Species featured people's memories of Lapwings, also known as peewits, green plovers or flopwings.
Lapwings have suffered enormous declines in Britain, and are now on the Red List of declining birds. Changes to farm management are one of the factors behind this, with a huge reduction in the wet meadows that the birds nest in.
Do you see Lapwings in your area? Can you remember seeing big flocks in the past?
