Sky Lark - Alauda arvensis
A breeding population of six territories has been recorded in 2011 and 2012. Sightings in the winter months are unusual, although the few areas of stubble are rarely walked and thus this species may be under recorded at this time of year.

Six territories were located during the breeding survey with some recently fledged juveniles seen in June. So far there has been little evidence of wintering birds present on the farm.
Two on 10th November. The breeding survey recorded six territories. None of the stubbles were walked in either winter period, so the winter numbers are likely to be under stated.
