An adult lapwing stands proudly in an arable field below a craggy gritstone edge. Derbyshire, Peak District National Park. Lapwings are the most widespread of our native waders, however sadly this stunning bird has seen a dramatic population decrease and is now a RSPB red list species.
The lapwing is a medium sized wading bird that is often known as the peewit due to their distinctive call. Lapwings are incredibly adaptable birds and inhabit a large range of habitats. Once a common sight in the British countryside this iconic species has seen a dramatic decline in population in recent years due to changes in farming practices and habitat loss.
