Species rich grassland in turn, attracts many species of insects, these are a vital
food source for many birds. (See the above flock of Starlings!) Since much of the
local landscape was ploughed in the 70’s, large flocks of birds like Lapwings that
patrolled the local skies, have become a sight of the past. Fortunately, some Stewardship
Schemes, have been introduced to address habitat loss for farmland birds......These
still have some way to go to bring back the Lapwing!
