Lapwing [Vanellus vanellus]


Also known as the peewit in imitation of its display calls, its proper name describes its wavering flight. Its black and white appearance and round-winged shape in flight make it distinctive, even without its splendid crest. This familiar farmland bird has suffered significant declines recently and is now an Red List species. [RSPB]

  27. En mi niñez y primeros años de juventud era muy frecuente encontrar al avefría en los prados, durante el invierno. Ahora hace ya mucho tiempo que no la veo y es una pena porque es un ave muy bella. Un abrazo,
