Census of Lapwing and Curlew

Lapwing and curlew have been surveyed since 1967, this now takes place in a field area south of Nyängen. The short version of the results is that the Lapwing held its population number relatively well while the curlew declined and recently been lost as a breeding species in Kvismaren. The lapwings also breed in restored wetlands and have been gradually increasing, while the large-scale agricultural changes have not been accepted by the curlews.
