I think its lapwings, but don't know f they are around on Pen Y Gent. We recently saw a similar egg in Langsett, raided from a nest and cracked revealing an almost ready chick. There were lapwings in the field by the path.

not really any good at egg ID but the nest looks most like curlew based on google images. could also be golden plover up there?
