Chris Packham relives programmes from The Living World archives. In this programme recorded in 2000, Lionel Kelleway is joined by Andy Wilson in Norfolk. There was a time when lapwing, green-plover, pewit, call it what you will, were a common sight over the British countryside. At the time of recording Lionel Kelleway tries to discover why lapwings - our only crested wader - are disappearing from the British countryside.
