Sky Lark

( Copyright Arthur Grosset )

The Sky Lark is a bird of open, cultivated land, meadows, heath land and, apparently, battlefields. It breeds in most of Europe and in parts of Asia.

The bird is greyish-brown and streaked on its upperparts and breast but with an unmarked white belly. Hearing its flight song can be quite frustrating because it stays at one spot about 50 - 100 m above the ground and can be difficult to see despite being able to hear the song quite clearly.
