I have to say that when they took off from the road calling i thought i had made a mistake in id, the calls were similar.

I heard a lapwing call when on Old Boboyan Road near the Yankee Hat carpark yesterday, and am now wondering whether the calls are similar and it was a Banded Lapwing rather than the Masked Lapwing that I recorded it as!

Thanks Shorty, but they weren’t still there when I went back down to Yankee Hat for the second time today! I met Lach and friends who also dashed down there this afternoon and couldn’t find any either.

I met a young bloke who is staying nearby who said he had seen and heard Banded Lapwings a few times on that stretch of Old Boboyan Road in the last few days – as recently as Sunday. I think he drives up there to get mobile phone reception on the hill.

These birds are all young ones.

My friend on the Hoskinstown Plain reports that they have overwintered there again and thinks they have started breeding.
