ROOFTOP (ONLY) LAPWINGS AND GOLDEN PLOVER


c100 Lapwing at 1725 today on the roof of Car People, the most I have seen at this site for a long time.

4/02/15 c50 Lapwing around 1700hrs

I've checked this site regularly throughout the winter, mainly at weekends and hadn't seen any Lapwing for several months until last week.

I'm currently writing species accounts for Lapwing and Golden Plover for the Greater Manchester County Report. The basis of the report is the database of records formally submitted to the Greater Manchester Bird Recording Group which is in the safe keeping of Ian McKerchar and Steve Atkins.

I was rather shocked to find that there were rather few records of roof roosts of either species in the database when there are so many postings on this thread, so I took a closer look. It transpired that only about a quarter of the sightings below were ever submitted to GMBRG. Both these species are of conservation concern. Lapwing is red-listed and Golden Plover is amber-listed, both in part due to declines in their wintering populations - WE NEED YOUR RECORDS!

What concerns me most is that this situation must apply across the whole range of bird species and that the conservation of our birds may suffer just because people can't be bothered to submit their records. If you can post on this forum, you can enter the record on a spreadsheet, or Rodis or Mapmate or BirdTrack - Ian and Steve have provided enough options to make life easier for you. Neither of them have the time to read every post on the forum and type the details into the database.

Please make it a New Year's resolution to record your bird sightings properly - but start NOW!

No-one has reported any roof-roosting Golden Plover this autumn.

If you do see any, this is the weekend of the European Golden Plover Census so please report any sightings of the species (whether on roofs or not) via Birdtrack.

Over the past few days Lapwing numbers have increased generally.

15 were visible this afternoon, with a couple on top of the roof, there could have been some out of view on the other side.

Just dropped a hire van off at Howarth Brothers which is between Oldham and Shaw near Derker.
Whilst there I was mobbed by a Lapwing in the car park, it was coming to within a couple of feet of my head.
Thought this unusual for the vicinity (although they do roost in quite large numbers on various roofs around here in the winter) so I enquired with the owners who told me they regularly nest on the roof there. It would be interesting to know how successful they are but I suspect observation would be a little tricky.
Great close up views however.

Late post for Saturday 22nd Feb.

At 12.30pm approx 50-60 Lapwing circling over Tom Chandleys then over the NHS buildings on Windmill Lane, then back over Tom Chandleys, I'd driven further down towards Sainsburys so didn't see which roof they chose in the end.

Sunday Dec 8th. 07-15 hrs

Roof of"Tom Chandleys Oven Engineers" Windmill Lane, Denton.

c 5 Lapwing. ???

Was expecting a high count this morning (plus a good chance of Golden Plover).

Blows all my theories out of the water.
Not much change there then !

Sunday Dec 1st. 07-15 hrs

Roof of"Tom Chandleys Oven Engineers" Windmill Lane, Denton.

c 91 Lapwing.

Think I timed it spot on this morning for a count ... some birds became unsettled after about 10 minutes and began to fly around in small groups

No Golden Plover. Only seem to be present when it is really cold (unless they had left earlier ..... do seem to leave before the Lapwings).

As I walked down Blackburn Road, Bolton at about 9.40am there were about 100 Lapwings up in the air above the Halliwell Road junction.
They then landed briefly before flying around for a while again, and then headed off towards Tonge Moor.
