Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to locally fairly common on sandy heathland and clearings in mixed and coniferous woodland. Inconspicuous, rather shy, and easily overlooked, often not seen until flushed up from the ground. Rather chunky, and shorter tailed than Eurasian Skylark. Overall brown and streaky with short bushy crest; black-and-white mark at bend of wing diagnostic but difficult to see. In flight has white tail corners but lacks skylark’s white tail sides and white trailing edge to wings. Like many larks, often best detected by voice.
