 Northern Lapwing  (Vanellus vanellus )



Identification: Lapwings are easily identified wading birds, medium sized, black and white with white faces and a long upright crest. In flight, the floppy, rounded black and white wings make them unmistakable.

Habitat: Breeds from the coast to the uplands on marshy areas and farmland. Winters on estuaries and farmland.

Distribution: The species is a common breeder across Britain, although less common in the south-west of England and north-west Scotland. In winter, huge flocks gather, usually on arable fields.

A common and easily located bird in much of Europe, especially in the west where large wintering flocks are very conspicuous.

Population: More than a million breeding pairs; widespread in Europe except in mediterranean areas.
