Lapwing or in Old English, Peewit.

I'm going to call this bird Joseph because his coat is truly of many iridescent multi-colours.

There are some quite large flocks of Lapwing at Pitsford Reservoir at the moment and they certainly brighten the place up and entertain the crowds with their aerobatics and their calls which sound like '' pee-wit '', hence the old alternative name for the bird.

Not the easiest to get an in flight image of as they flit around, flit is not a word that you would associate with bigger birds but let me tell you these birds flit !.
