The Northern Lapwing

What a beautiful and elegant bird, the lapwing. When you see him fly over the fields with his funny flapping and antics you just have to watch this stunt pilot. As a wader he is very vulnerable. He doesn’t always feel at home anymore. He has come up with clever tricks to keep thieves away from his nest: he will act injured to lead predators away from his eggs.Unfortunately there are more threats, mostly caused by humans. We should take better care of this jewel in the lands.
