I did a post back in the summer of the “Peewit”. I was not fully happy with my pictures so on seeing this bird this morning I decided to post again this fantastic looking bird. 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). 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 a light pink.
