What bird is this?

Wow thanks, be farming 35yrs and never seen them before. The last 2 yrs we have left a 2ac nesting plot for them. Thought the badgers and foxes would mop them up. 

Whereabouts are you?

Leaving a plot for Golden Plover in lowland UK is pointless as they only nest in upland places like the Pennines. 

You may though be rewarded by other ground nesting birds like Lapwings.
