Nature Adventures with Will

Looking for Lapwings

William Pearce, a student from Exeter, visits Yorkshire, determined to see a Lapwing chick for the first time. Over three days, we follow him on visits to the wild Yorkshire moors in search of these bundles of fluff, and watch as he encounters many more new wild animals, including Black Grouse, Oystercatchers, and Brown Hares.
