This MEGA rarity was photographed in Middleboro, Mass on 11-12-2012, on property of Cumberland Farms in one of their many fields, the bird was staying close to one spot the four hours I was there. More so when a Peregrine Falcon flew over the fields. The only photos i got were taken at well over  500 yds, with a Canon 50 D,  Canon 400mm, 5.6 lens, and a Canon 1.4 tele-extender. I shot in Program mode,  ISO 640, shutter opened 1 1/2 stops

This week approximately 4-5 lapwings were all reported on Nantucket Island, and Plymouth County.
