Northern Lapwing - Vipe - Vanellus vanellus

In common with Golden Plover, this species uses the fields behind the shore rather than the shore itself for the majority of the time and its occurrence is therefore influenced by the state of the crops. It is very much a visitor of late autumn and early winter - numbers drop off after December. Northern Lapwing has barely been noted at Stag Rocks since the winter 1987-1988.

The record count during the period I counted waders there is 300 individuals.
