Meadow birds

Northern Lapwing

Lapwings are migratory birds. From February to June they are in their breeding grounds, which include the German state of Lower Saxony and the Dutch province of Fryslân. 

When their chicks have fledged, both adult and young birds migrate to north-western Europe (e.g. France or Great Britain) to spend the winter there. In mild winters, Lapwings sometimes winter in northern Germany.
