Just got back from a four day break down in Cornwall.Spent yesterday on Trevose Head and managed to locate a couple of pair of Skylarks and Meadow Pipits here is one of the images.This was after a three mile walk to the beach as a neighbour invited me down and he was driving.So I loaded myself up with camera bag ,tripod and chair walked three mile there and about another mile or so on reaching my destination.Then had it all to do again .But this is one of the results all was worth it but now suffering.Thanks for all comments and votes on previous uploads.

hi skewey

well done. i really like the way the blue around the head sets off the buff colours in the rest of the photo as does that blade of grass on the bottom right corner.
