Lapwing




Lapwing - March - Leeshaw near Oxenhope and Haworth Moor


Lapwing

The Lapwing so called because of its undulating flight is also known as a "peewit" due to its characteristic calling sound.

Can be seen on moorland, pasture and farmland. They do not winter here, arriving in February and leave September onwards. Dates first seen:

23rd February 2007 on Haworth moor.
10th February 2008 at Leeshaw reservoir.
13th March 2009 at Leeshaw.
2nd March 2010 at Marsh.

The 3 inset pictures are a sequence showing the tumbling display of the Lapwing, usually seen late February - March. They do this as a way of establishing territory and as a courtship ritual.

Length: 28-31cm
