SHORE LARK 28-09-10

Steve alerted me to the presence of one of these gorgeous birds in the Trow area this afternoon. When I arrived Dougie was already there with his camera, hiding behind the Mango Pub waiting for the bird to show well enough for a good picture. We didnt wait long, as the bird came out from the dunes and started to feed along the side of the road. It wasnt particularly shy and we watched it for quite a while before a passing cyclist had it heading back to the beach. This was the first time I'd seen one locally, as I'd only previously seen them in Norfolk and up at Cresswell. Not long after we were joined by Steve and Dave Gilmour, just in time for the Lark to return and start to feed in the car park right in front of us.
