Breeding Lapwings

23rd July 2013
These lovely birds have suffered huge habitat loss over the last ten years causing a major decline in their numbers, so it is very pleasing to see my good neighbours, John and Ann Morgan at Middlewood Farm, Bwlch, going out of their way to create a wet habitat suitable for Lapwings to breed and successfully raise their young. All credit to them for this effort.
This is the third year that the Lapwings have bred successfully, this year raising three young.
