Lapwing by craftymeg

Lapwing

Just by chance I caught a lapwing this afternoon, it’s not very often you get a chance for a photo so I was pleased it held still long enough for this shot. They are migratory birds that arrive in spring to breed and put on the most watchable aerobatic flying displays across the moorland where they nest.
Nice on black

Thank you for all your lovely comments and favs all are appreciated and welcome
A stunning capture Margaret, love the colours and detail. Fav

Lovely capture but I think it’s a lapwing and not a curlew. I was in Derbyshire last week and was watching curlews overhead. They have a long curved beak.
