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 (436 downloads)
