The eggs of plovers considered to be a delicacy, generally cream or buff-coloured with dark brown spots or blotches, generally replaced by eggs of various species of gull (black- headed, lesser black-backed, great black-backed, etc.), which are similar in colour. In the UK they can only be gathered up to April the 14th and for home consumption only. Their sale is prohibited.

Plovers’ eggs are the eggs of the Northern  Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), also known as the Green Plover or the Peewit. The eggs are laid on open ground.

When cooked, they may be served hot or cold; if the latter, they are often served, as here, on a bed of moss.
