The Skylark (Poyser Monograph)
The Skylark is one of Britain's most popular and inspirational birds, and in recent years it has also been one of the most newsworthy. The population has plummeted as a consequence of changes in farming practice. This book looks at all aspects of the life of the Skylark, from its biology, migratory patterns, breeding behaviour and habitat requirements to its role in legend and folklore. It also discusses the recent rapid decline that has led to the species being placed on the top priority list of Birds of Conservation Concern.
