Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus)

Another wet day today, that doesn't seem right............... Anyway, I took these up at Slimbridge, it was a dream land. Actually, I would go and settle down there. Hum????????????

  1. The green shimmer on the Lapwing shows just how beautiful that day must have been. I could live there, too!
