  • A nickname for the common green plover. Cf. piewipe.

    On this ground the common green plover — Vanellus cristatus — then commonly called the “Pyewipe,” bred in large numbers; the eggs were, as they are still, regarded as a delicacy, and old “Tabshag” used to make a considerable sum of money every year by sending hampers of these eggs by coach up to London for sale. --Records of Woodhall Spa and Neighbourhood Historical, Anecdotal, Physiographical, and Archaeological, with Other Matter, by J Conway Walter., W. K. Morton, 1899.
