The first Lapwing chicks hatched earlier this week despite regular snow showers
Lapwings are one of our first waders to produce chicks each year. This year they were not fooled by the unseasonably warm weather in March, but waited until April to establish their nest sites. Having waited until the right time they are now having to endure unusually wet and cold conditions just as their chicks are hatching. Lets hope that things warm up soon.
