The people in the region of Jæren, Norway is really happy now that the northern lapwings are back on their fields ツ When you hear them say in their dialect "Vibå æ komen!" (The lapwing has arrived!) you know that spring is here ツ

 

I was really lucky today, getting this shot! I have lots of images of the lapwings from a distance and in the air, but it's difficult to get close. When we drove past some fields of Jæren today, we suddenly saw two lapwings sitting right outside the window of the car. Luckily I had my camera ready ツ

 

I found a very cozy poem about this bird, written by one of the poets from Jæren.

It was too long to translate, but it is about a lonely lapwing coming to Jæren when there still are some frosty days left between winter and spring. She's lonely and cold, while waiting for the rest of the lapwings to arrive. Finally the sun gets warmer, the others arrive, they nest and the farmers have to walk carefully on the fields. In the end autumn arrives and the lapwings head south..

The poem in Norwegian:

 

Vipa

 

Det kjennes mest som vinter, med iskald vind frå nord,

for ennå har`kje tela slept taket i vår jord.

Men sjølv om det er våren, er natta ennå grå,

men sola stig på himmelen snart spirer korn og strå.

 

Ut på den snaue åker i kulde og i blest,

der sit ei stakkars vipa utan skjerf og vest.

Ho frys nok fælt på beina her på den frosne jord,

det var jo her ho hadde lagt reiret sitt i fjor.

 

Nå sit ho der åleine i denne kalde vind,

ho kom så all for tidleg frå vinterplassen sin.

Nå er ho blitt forkjøla og halsen er blitt sår,

eit lite hest vi-vipp er det vårt øyra når.

 

Kva ville ho så tidleg hjå oss her langt mot nord,

å sitje her å fryse på denne frosne jord.

Ho kom vel ekstra tidlig på besøk til oss i år,

ho burde heller venta til det vart ordentlig vår.

 

Men imot vind og kulde ho finn ei livdakrå,

der ho i ly for vinden ei kvilestund kan få.

Slik sit ho der og hutrar og frys den lange dag,

og ventar på at fleire vil slå seg ned i lag.

 

Og snart kjem store flokkar med viper ifrå sør,

så nå må ein gå varsomt og sjå kor hen ein trør.

For midt på snaue åkaren dei lagar sine reir

av strå og tørre kvistar - og ikkje noko meir.

 

Og sola stig på himlen, det lysnar meir og meir,

og vipa ligg og ruger på egg i sine reir.

Men snart du høyrer pip pip i millom gras og strå,

og vipemor sit stille og vaktar på dei små.

 

Men når ho så er ferdig med jobben for i år,

ho slår seg ned i flokken som utpå åkeren går.

Når sumaren er til ende og hausten står for dør,

då lettar heile flokken og set sin kurs mot sør.

 

~ Joleiv Ellingsen, from the book «Rim og stubber om koner og gubber» ~

Ljip (FRL)

Yn Fryslân is der in tradysje om it earst fûne ljipaai oan te bieden oan de Kommissaris fan de Keninginne en earder oan de Keninginne sels. Yn 2005 is foar it earst ferbean om aaien te sykjen en mei te nimmen. Sûnt 2006 is it wer tastien. Alle aaisikers moatte by it finen fan in aai earst fia sms tastimming freegje foar it opkrijen derfan. De meinommen aaien wurde registrearre. As it maksimum tastiene tal aaien meinommen is, wurdt in sms ferstjoerd dat it opkrijen net mear mei. Dat systeem kin der neffens de rjochtbank op troch. Wa't it earste aai fan Fryslân fynt, kriget de Sulveren Ljip.

 

It finen fan in aai is it symboalyske begjin fan de maitiid.

Northern Lapwing a.k.a. peewit, green plover.

 

One of many...

Popular myth has it that lapwings only return in late February/early March, but actually lapwings are one of the few Dutch wader birds that can practically be seen all year round.

 

Admittedly when winter sets in in earnest they do often move south, but they return as soon as the sub-zero temps have subsided. In winter they tend to congregate in very large flocks of up to thousands of birds.

kievit, vanellus vanellus, common lapwing,

Der Kranich hat sich hier wieder angesiedelt und zieht seine Jungen auf. Das Tister Bauernmoor ist einer der bedeutendsten Kranichplätze im nordwestdeutschen Flachland. Im Spätherbst rasten in dem Moor mehrere tausend Kraniche, bevor sie in ihre Winterquartiere weiterfliegen. 2008 wurden hier etwa 5.000 rastende Kraniche gezählt. Auch der seltene Seeadler und der Fischadler wurden hier gesichtet. Folgende Greifvögel wurden in dem Moor außerdem beobachtet: Baumfalke, Wanderfalke, Merlin, Rohrweihe, Kornweihe, Wiesenweihe, Rotmilan, Schwarzmilan, Wespenbussard und Raufußbussard. [2] Daneben liegen Brutnachweise, mindestens aber Brutzeitbeobachtungen von: Sumpfohreule, Raubwürger, Krickente, Knäkente, Löffelente, Schwarzstorch, Bekassine, Kiebitz, Ziegenmelker, Feldschwirl, Schwarzkehlchen, Braunkehlchen und Neuntöter vor. Die Liste der Rastvögel zählt mehr als 40 Arten auf.
