This book, the latest in the Poyser monograph series, covers the biology of the Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus. It primarily concerns the breeding season in northern Europe, of which the book provides a comprehensive review. The species occurs in Africa, mainly only in winter along the north coast, although it does breed rarely in Morocco and winters occasionally south to Mauritania, Senegal and the Cape Verdes.
