I also saw no Lapwings when I visited this this morning 10.15 and again as it started to snow at 12.30. I have visited the site often as it is very easy for me to do so. On several occasions none could be found.

Barbara Allan and I attended the usual site this morning before the blizzard struck.  3 Banded Lapwings were down by the road.  We scanned the surrounding paddocks closely and there was no evidence of sitting (or squatting) birds so I assume that disposes of any thoughts that they might have nested.  Certainly the weather which followed (a brisk 0.9C at 1345) would have reduced the vitality of any uncovered eggs.
