The lapwing is a black and white member of the plover family with a magnificent crest. It gets its name from the way it flys, which is wavering. In-flight, you'll see the rounded wing shape which makes it easier to identify.
Lapwings are also known as peewits due to their display calls.
Their diets mainly consist of insects and worms.
