Good numbers of Lapwing at Stithians

There is an unusual number of Lapwings currently at Stithians Reservoir, probably due to the water levels there currently. Yesterday there was a flock of 400 or so, mainly congregated in front of the hide.  The water level is perfect at the moment for resting birds, ie plenty of water for protection but raised banks for resting and feeding.  The light yesterday was perfect as well for some fairly close photography.
