This is a Lapwing. They have a distinctive head crest and amazing shimmering green colours on their body plumage. And yes, they are loud. LOL

Thank you very much. I have not seen them for a few days now. I presume they had a nest and the young have fledged. Where do they go to?

A Lapwings nest is merely a scrape out in rough open ground during the springtime. The rough ground gives them a better chance of hiding their chicks from predators.
