Lovely birds. I remember seeing huge flocks of these when I was a kid ... sadly long gone from the British countryside in such numbers. It was great watching them over ploughed fields in the Autumn.

Great shot of a very unusual looking bird that I would love to see in person.

This one was trying to keep us away from its nest I think. It was pulling the usual lapwing stunt of pretending to be hurt and unable to fly, letting us walk really close then fluttering off a few yards before repeating the performance. When it judged we were well away from its nest it soared away.
