I spent a couple of hours this morning with Chris Brewer trying to track down the Lapland Buntings, eventually locating a flock of 36. No Skylarks with them so for once we were able to make an accurate count, though it's possible there are other birds elsewhere as there are so many suitable fields in this area. The lack of flighty Skylarks also meant we were finally able to get some record shots of the flock. How many can you see? These really are mouse-like in habit and are very easy to overlook unless they take flight. I can spot eight in this shot.
