Northern Lapwing ringtone


The Northern Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), also known as the Peewit, Green Plover or (in the British Isles) just Lapwing, is a bird in the plover family. It is ordinary through temperate Eurasia. It is highly migratory over most of its extensive array, wintering further south as far as north Africa, northern India, Pakistan, and parts of China. It migrates mainly by day, often in large flocks. Lowland breeders in westernmost areas of Europe are resident. It irregularly is a vagrant to North America, especially after storms, as in the Canadian sightings after storms in December 1927 and in January 1966. Vanellus_vanellus.mp3 (426 downloads)

Crested Lark ringtone


The Crested Lark, Galerida cristata, breeds across most of temperate Eurasia from Portugal to northeast China and eastern India, and in Africa south to Niger. It is non-migratory, and the sedentary nature of this species is illustrated by the fact that it is only a very rare vagrant to Fantastic Britain, despite breeding as close as northern France.
