Natures Sport Kite
I managed to get some pictures of the lapwings flying today – not great pictures but it is a start. There were as many as 12 display flying around two fields which is such an extraordinary sight. The way they use their wings in their flight reminds me totally of my power kite … I see the same curvature, same shapes and the same outcomes form adopting that shape … however since I don’t have strings to fly them keeping track through the zoomed camera lens is tricky.
I am just going to post the pictures I have and then try and get more over the weekend and update this post.
The noises these birds make is incredible too … one of their alternative names comes from their calls “Pewit”
Watch for an update note in the title as I have more to add to this.
