The second shot is the first angle of the bird I shot. As we sat on the beach at the base of the cliffs, hands sifting through the sandy spoil of a recent landslide I could hear short bursts of song carried by the strong wind blowing seaward above our heads. I kept one eye on the sky, probably missing numerous fossils in the sand. It didn't take long to see a single lark pop up above the edge of the cliff, struggle to hold its position in the gusty sky and sing its heart out for 15 or 20 seconds before ducking back down to the field atop the cliff.
I later crept to the top of the cliff - using the path at the south end of the beach and walked slowly back to the place I had been sitting below. A lark popped up in front of me as I stepped. Not wanting to tread on eggs or young I stood still and watched the small brown lark try and coax me away from the nest for a few minutes. I took a couple of shots as it landed amongst the crops before popping up again. I turned on my heels and returned to the tooth hunt continuing below.

Here's a few shots from a while back.
The first three are from a day trip to a cold and overcast Mersea Island on the Essex coast.

These were taken on a day out in the North Suffolk/ South Norfolk countryside in early
March. The lambs were fresh into the fields and the foal we spotted as we drove from Lakenheath base into the town.
The cat, is one of many in residence around the yard of the business I work for.
