Gordano Valley Lapwings
This morning at sunrise I watched 18 lapwing lift off from the North Pool. Once upon a time you would have seen flocks of a hundred strong. Sadly over the last 20 or so years, numbers have fallen dramatically.
Portbury Wharf is an important staging post for wildlife heading into the Gordano Valley. That is exactly where these lapwings were going this morning.
Bringing back lapwings to the Gordano Valley is a project that the Avon Wildlife Trust have been working on. Let’s hope we see many more of these delightful birds in the future.
Look out for these lovely Gordano Valley lapwings on the pools in winter time.
