I was in absolute Lapwing heaven on Thursday! My friend and I went to Llanmadoc on the Gower Peninsula and had a lovely walk in and around the sandunes there, at Whiteford Sands Nature Reserve. Amazing place. I don't think either of us had seen a Lapwing before so it was such a thrill to finally spot some! Such incredible birds, stunningly beautiful! Here's a few pics I took of them.
Beautiful photos Ella as you say they are a lovely colourful bird and well done on getting them in flight.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Always a smart looking bird the Lapwing.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Thanks. It was such a thrill for me to see some for the first time, and pretty close up too! Beautiful, elegant birds. :)
Some lovely shots Ella.
The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none.
Llanmadoc! I used to holiday there with my parents when I was about 8yrs old, didn't notice the birds then but what a beautiful place, just right for a reserve. Lovely pics of a bird that are not so numerous these days.
Lot to learn
