CommentOn the eastern side of the Little River Bird Hide, I noticed a group of Masked Lapwings foraging along the shoreline. Here they are - the Flight of the Lapwings - as they move to a new feeding spot along the shoreline. Their extraordinary masked appearance is very evident. They are famed for their diving attacks in defence of their chicks during breeding season but thankfully this group of five did not have me in their sights.
