Skylark

The Skylark (Alauda arvensis) is a small brown bird and is a member of the Lark family. It is a streaky brown colour with a small crest, the tail is white-sided and the wings also have a rear white edge that is visible in flight.

They are renowned for their display flight, vertically up in the air.

Farmland, heathland, wetlands, marsh and wildflower meadows are natural habitats for the Skylark, it enjoys the open countryside and can be found throughout the UK.

When spotted, they can be seen effortlessly hovering and singing from a great height before seemingly parachuting back down to earth.
