A trip to Winters today to look for the white-tailed lapwing while it was still there. The weather was challenging to say the least: 4C, strong NW winter and continuous wintry squalls sweeping over. None the less we found the lapwing where we expected by the wind pump of the marsh. Although it was busily feeding when we arrived it spent a great deal of time sheltering behind the rushes out of the wind. It was quite distant and too far away for successful photography but I was pleased with some record shots. Although we didn't move far away from the pit, we did manage to find 35 species plus a roe deer buck so a successful day.
