peewit eggs

Did you know that it is a Frisian tradition to offer the first found lapwing egg to the Queen’s Commissioner of Friesland? The northern province is the only place in Europe where peewit eggs may be collected and each egg must be registered with the local authorities. The first egg of 2012 was found last weekend in a cornfield by a birdwatcher. The finding of the first peewit egg is a symbol of the beginning of spring.
