It's been a dire couple of weeks in this country - last weekend I didn't even get my camera out of its bag. I managed about an hour and a half on the patch, got cold and wet, and went home birdless. This week has been much the same, so instead of new material I've been going through my folders from Morocco to see if I can tease any more images out. As such, I've just about managed to cobble together a post about Larks, in this case Crested, Thekla, and Desert. They were actually relatively difficult to photograph as they never really stayed too still - definitely some species to try for again on a sunsequent visit. I'm satisfied with some of the Wheatear photos; that's where I devoted most time, but I can definitely improve significantly on the larks, especially in terms of backgrounds, which in the following images are mostly pretty messy.
The first four images are Crested Lark, the next two Thekla Lark (as Crested really, but a much stubbier bill), and the final one a Desert Lark.
