Quite a decent number at the reserve with several pairs breeding too.

Nearly all of the Lapwing activity takes place on the many islands dotted around the lakes, a long way away and very safe for this shy bird. Except you always get one don’t you; this bird has cottoned on that those pesky humans stay behind that flimsy rope so it’s perfectly safe to forage in the field with the collection. Mind you it did stray too close to the Wigeon and got a peck on the head for waking it up.
