Skylark

Monday, January 27th 2020

One member of the bird ringing team lives close to Salisbury Plain and has recently been catching Redwing and Skylark. He has emailed a couple of photographs of a Skylark to be shared on the blog.

These small brown birds are well known for their beautiful song. Their unmistakable song-flights can last for up to an hour and the birds can reach 300m before descending. Skylarks nest on the ground and usually lay three to four eggs. The chicks become independent after only two weeks and parents can have up to four broods in a breeding season.
