Woodlarks at Paviland

Chris Brewer found and photographed two obliging Woodlarks in stubble at Paviland today (photos (c) Chris Brewer).
In addition to the bold white supercilium behind the eye, note
the diagnostic black & white alula below the greater coverts.
Photo showing well how the white supercilia meet in a 'V' on the nape.
Woodlarks have appeared in south-west Gower in five out of the last 10 years, with October-November being by far the best time to look for them.

Nice find Chris and good shots too. It's good to hear that the area is picking up where it left off last year.
