Our winter guest.

The northern lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), also known as the peewit or pewit, tuit or tew-it, green plover, or (in Britain and Ireland) just lapwing, is a bird in the lapwing family. It is common through temperate Eurasia.

It is highly migratory over most of its extensive range, wintering further south as far as north Africa, northern India, Pakistan, and parts of China. It migrates mainly by day, often in large flocks. Lowland breeders in westernmost areas of Europe are resident. It occasionally is a vagrant to North America, especially after storms, as in the Canadian sightings after storms in December 1927 and in January 1966.

Hello Biswarup,
Nice to see such a beautiful photo next to mine. Very nice natural colours in beautiful light. Good sharpness and taken from a good low POV.

Hello Biswarup,
Amazing details and excellent natural colors. I can hardly wait that bird to migrate in my region in spring.
