Hi wildtuinman and MattAxel

Thanks for the help so far.

Are we then happy with the ID on sabota lark (thanks for the great tip wildtuinman, will certainly keep an eye out for that in future!)?

Me thinks I will rather look for simpler birds, larks are not my thing...

Agreed. It looks like the pics I have of sabota lark.

A confirmed tick for me. 8)
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.
