Day 14: Lunch with lapwings

30 Days Wild 

Day 14 

Yesterday, we ate our lunch outside in the school garden, which we’ve done often lately. However, yesterday we enjoyed the techno noises made by lapwings overhead. A few pairs a nesting in fields either side of Ulva Primary and so the adults were whizzing above on their lovely rounded wings. A few weeks ago on a trip with Nature Scotland, we watched four lapwing chicks as they explored their field, with adults nearby to fend off the ever present hooded crows. We’re also hearing the bubbling call of curlew, they too are nesting in the next-door fields, chasing off any bird that comes to close for comfort.
