A series of images that I’ve been given, apparently from May 2012. What we see is a Lapwing which looks like it might be settling on, or getting up from, a nest. Looks a bit like a male Lapwing on crest length and amount of black – but I’m no expert on Lapwings (and males do some incubating in this species).
And then, apparently at 06:13 in the morning, at the same place, a couple of days later, there’s a rather attractive cock Pheasant apparently being mobbed by two Lapwings. Great photo!
And then, two and a half minutes later, a Lapwing is flying off with what looks like a Lapwing egg in its beak and there even appear to be some drops of yellow yolk-like liquid dropping out of the eggshell.
And quarter of an hour later that (same?) cock Pheasant is having another close look at the area where the Lapwing was sitting.
What do you think was going on here?[registration_form]
