Peewit

The Lapwing is one of the UK’s largest waders, about the size of a pigeon (It is also known as the Peewit or Green Plover). Although you can not tell from my photo’s as the bird was in shadow the upper parts are a beautiful iridescent dark green and purple. The breast and cheeks are white and under-tail coverts are orange-brown. The legs are pink.
