Article summary

This article describes the recent expansion of Lapwing, Fieldfare and Corn Bunting in Belgian Lorraine (Southern Belgium). Lapwing and Fieldfare nested here for the first time in 1971, but their populations have increased, especially during the last five years. Although very local, Corn Bunting are nesters of long standing, but since 1 974 they have spread over a large part of the Lorraine country. In 1981, a census of three species in the southern half ot this region revealed about 30 pairs of Lapwing, 250 to 300 pairs of Fieldfare and approximately 50 Corn Bunting territories.
