The lapwings are back, and the males are putting on a wonderful aerial display and filling the air with their evocative calls as they seek mates and defend their territory from rivals. Although breeding numbers are greatly reduced in most of Britain (it is now a red list species), the North Pennines still has a good population of this beautiful bird. (Although usually described as 'black and white', you can see why they are known in some areas as 'green plovers'.)
A red squirrel at Killhope museum. The squirrel's not raiding a nest box: despite the museum being closed until 1 April, somebody's still filling the feeders.
