  • Lapwing
    The Northern Lapwing, also commonly known here in the UK as the Peewit, Green Plover, or just Lapwing, is a wader in the plover family.  Its rounded wings make it quite distinctive in the air.  It has a black crest, body plumage mainly black and white but having a green tint to its back feathers.  Itís also got the shortest legs of any other plover.<br/><br/> Itís a very migratory bird, however the UK is a bit unique as it is here year-round.  We have both breeders, passage migrants, and winter visitors.  You can see these birds both on coastal mudflats, and in fields further inland. Another tidbit on this bird is how it got its name of Peewit, which comes from its distinctive shrill calls.

  • Winter Wren
    The wren is the most common of britain's breeding birds, and with the loudest voice by far in comparison to its size.  It's not britain's smallest bird, as that falls to the goldcrest, but this is still a remarkably tiny bird.  Most commonly located by its boisterous warbling call, it can easily be identified by its cocky little tail which is cocked up vertically.</br> Of the 27 eurasian subspecies and 12 north american subspecies, britain is home to 3 subspecies.  One is limited to the island of St. Kilda, another to Shetland, and the last to Fair Isle.</br> True to its latin name, during the harsh cold winters, it resides in dark holes or caves, sometimes huddling with other individuals to keep warm.

    Until the 1950s, the little egret was restricted to southern europe.  Gradually it has started to move north, and finally started breeding in the UK in the late 20th century.  This is an all-white bird with a dark bill, dark legs and yellow feet.  In the breeding season you will see the skin on the face become red or blue.  Juveniles are similar but have duller legs and feet than the non-breeding adults.
