bustard plover

[English] plural bustard plovers

Lapwing. A variety of plover which congregates on ploughed fields in winter. They have green wings and a proud crest. We call them flapwings because of their odd, random flight. If they are eaten, they are usually gutted and roasted and served on buttered toast and garnished with lemon and watercress.
