Hi All,
Well thanks PJ Milburn for accepting the remote possibility that our Lapwing is an to your logic with the Parrot...Apples are vegetables but not all vegetables are apples...Shaun Bagley doesn't convince either...we are talking of a bird that is primarily tropical,uses trade winds to migrate,lives in moist swampy country,here we are it has defied the prevailing winds,overflown conducive habitats and taken up residence it would seem in an arid area where they have recently had frosts...he has callousities rubbing injuries or warts...lets ask our banders how often they see such a thing in a Wild Bird...As I agree it can happen with Fish lines I once saw it in a Chough years ago...Shaun the Birds you mention are a bit irrelevant...Still at the End of the Day as John Disney once was quoted asd saying "they got wings they can fly"Our Lapwing would have to be on a par with the well authenticated stories of Fish,Frogs,even Monkeys and Alligators that have fallen from the sky to convince me....Terry Gourlay.
