Venus Pool - Lapwing

I normally ignore them but with nothing moving today, the Lapwings caught my eye! A female quite close to the hide....

Was nowhere near as difficult to photograph as the male who like a fighter jet, was scrambled to repel every corvid or gull which threatened to enter their airspace!

Quite the most acrobatic of flyers, sttops, loops and barrel rolls. They spend quite a bit of time flying upside down whilst twisting their head around! Look closely......
