Peewits, or...

Observation - Peewits, or... - UK and Ireland. Description: ...Lapwings: the latter name now seeming to be the one universally given in field guides. However, when I was a child, in the 1960s we always knew them as Peewits. Is this now an archaic term, or perhaps it is Regional: I grew up in Suffolk.
