The Skylark is classified as a Red List Species-High Conservation Concern.
The Skylarks song is typical of open countryside and farmland, as the bid hangs in the air, almost too high to see. It eats insects and seeds. The nest is on the ground.
Open country and woodland glades with bare ground, grass, heather or braken and scattered trees for song posts is the home of the woodlark.
Shore Larks breed in the far north or at high altitudes in open, often barren country. Northern birds migrate to coastal dunes, saltmarshes and beaches or to some arable areas. The bird feeds on insects and seeds and nests on the ground, often among short vegetation.
