Lapwings in the Somerset Levels

Hi - it's been a while, so I thought I'd post this little video of a large flock of lapwings I saw at a little nature reserve in the Somerset Levels. All the birds in the film are lapwings, and they went on and on into the distance. Must have been thousands of them.

No doubt this was once a common sight, but it is by far the largest flock I have ever seen.
