Lapwing counts down from 2009
Signs of Avian Predation has affected Lapwing Productivity.
Early counts conducted in Boora in 2010 have suggested that there has been a fall off in Lapwing breeding productivity.
Following last years successes there are indications that the high level of Buzzard hunting activity maybe having a detrimental effect on breeding numbers this year.
Evidence would suggest that hunting activity by the buzzards is causing the lapwing to abandon breeding attempts
