Lapwings, Plovers and Starlings

Baildon Moor is a great place for wildlife and several bird species breed in the area. Later in the Spring there will be many birds nesting on the ground. We will all need to keep our eyes open to avoid these areas so that the eggs can hatch.

Fieldfare, a winter visitor, can sometimes be seen in their hundreds in some of the adjacent fields.

This year in February there are flocks of Starlings, Lapwings, Golden Plover and a few Curlew.
