Lapwings !

photo found on Google, BTW.

I haven't seen any Lapwings for at least two years. These shy, rare (and sadly rapidly becoming rarer) birds tend to congregate on farmland in the Winter.

Imagine my delight yesterday when whilst walking the dog, I saw some in a field ! I didn't have my camera with me, sadly. And today, whilst driving past a field with sheep in, I saw **20** of these stunning birds.

Made my day, that's all I can say :-)

So that's what a lapwing looks like! I would have had no idea what they were, had I seen these. Thanks for sharing.
