Not a new bird ...

... but something i had not seen before. I saw a Nothern
Lapwing (Vanellus Vanellus/Kievit/Vipe) standing in a field.
That in itself is not very exciting, but when i looked a little
closer i saw that the bird was standing next to its mate that
was sitting on their nest. Normally the nests and the
brooding birds are very well hidden and not to be found
unless you almost have stepped on them, but not this
pair and their eggs. It must be because the nest was
in a quiet piece of land where there were no sheep or
other animals grazing.
