Much of the farmland where I watched these birds as a child is now housing estates this and changing farming methods have led to a large decline in this species numbers in recent years.

  1. I called them tewits. As a child I lived on a farm and one of our fields was called Tewit Hills. Happy news. Today on the way to the coast we passed through the Trough of Bowland and passed a field which was full of these gorgeous birds. 🙂
