The northern lapwing (Vanellus vanellus)
… is a short-distance migrant
Measuring 28 – 31 cm in length, the northern lapwing is roughly the same size as a pigeon. It breeds in treeless, sparsely vegetated areas, feeding primarily off insects and worms. These birds, which belong to the plover family, can be found in wetlands, by lakes and streams, and on cultivated land.
Northern lapwings do not fly very long distances, migrating to France, Spain and north-west Africa in small ocks. Around 80 pairs still breed in Vorarlberg.+
