Thanks Richard,
They are also called "Lapwings". It was explained to me by a local that the "Blacksmith name was due to the sound they make, (which I have never heard) that reportedly sounds akin to a hammer hitting an anvil.

That these get called plovers is curious indeed, and to make matters more confusing, they can be seen alongside ringed plovers that look much more like our more stubby versions we see in the states.

Interesting, in the UK the bird we call the Lapwing is also know as the Green Plover.
