Lapwings -vs- Heron on Islay

Islay on Video written in stencil

Just a short video this evening, in a way a David -vs- Goliath story. I've seen similar scenes with in particular Crows and similar birds attacking and harassing birds of prey like Buzzards on Islay and elsewhere. However I can't recall Lapwings taking exception with a Heron and having a go:

For those who don't recognise it, this was filmed at the RSPB reserve at Loch Gruinart on Islay. I hope you've enjoyed the clip and if you haven't been it might encourage you to visit the reserve. With a bit of patience there's almost always something interesting to see.
