Lark, Large-billed

Unread postby Neil Crawford » Tue Dec 30, 2008 1:25 am

And while I'm pestering you, how about this one?
Same stony grassland with antheaps near East-Somerset in February.
The closest I can find in Sasol is the striped pipit, but it's a bit out of that area, any ideas?

Thanks for all your help so far.

I just had an idea, how about a Large-billed(southern thickbilled) lark instead of a pipit? It has a yellow base to the bill.
