Another photo from 2015, taken a bit earlier in the year while I was still using Nikon kit. Most likely taken at WWT Arundel. The Lapwing is also known as a Peewit (because of it's call) or Green Plover.

Not the most common of birds these days, Keith. The iridescent sheen on the plumage is really lovely.

C'est un des plus bels oiseaux de nos contrées., et difficile à photographier. là, la photo est magnifique.Il y a deux ans, j'en ai trouvé un bléssé en bord de route. Je l'ai gardé quelques jours avant de l'emmener dans un "hôpital pour animaux sauvages". Durant ces quelques jours, il est devenu vite familier et venait manger dés que je lui donnais de la nourriture. Celà m'a beaucoup étonné. J'aurais aimé le garder. Cette photo restitue bien ses magnifiques couleurs. Quant au reflet, c'est superbe. Amitié. Jan paul

Beautiful and confident bird with metallic colored feathers. You can hardly get a snapshot in so much detail. All the best, Anton.
