Lapwing. Brian Rafferty.
Suffering as much as any other farmland breeder - and more than most - the Lapwing may be subject to an even greater threat and decline if government cuts go ahead. Please read on....
No birding today but an excellent opportunity - void of it becoming a political platform - to draw attention to visitors of Birds2blog of the fact that the government of this country are busy sharpening their scissors in order to make cuts to many areas including ones which will affect the future of our wildlife leaving our children and future generations without the benefits and joys of what we have today including mine and your main interest the birds.
Please consider taking a look at the message from the RSPB which explains everything using the link below and signing the petition. At the foot of the first page you see and read you'll see a yellow 'What can I do' box, clicking on the box you will then see another blue box at the top right hand side of the page as a link to ask you to sign the letter.
If you are reading this then I really do appreciate your interest in Birds2blog which I am desperately trying to keep up to date. I hope you will continue to keep looking in and thank you for that, also many thanks to BR for the photograph of the Lapwing.
The RSPB: Don't cut the countryside!
