Glorious Skylarks mimic finches warblers even waders for impressive nearly all year display. Wild powerful resonant mellifluous medley.
‘Skylarks amazing song-flight feat of stamina and strength.’
While flapping so hard to lift vertically hundreds of feet up into the air while continuously loudly singing.
An extended outpouring of chirruping warbles and whistling.
“Non-stop for 15-20 minutes without drawing breathe with an irresistible energy to it that” – ‘lifts the heart.’
This delightful singing from Skylarks is all pouring forth from a dark speck way up high in the sky. Hardly larger than a sparrow.
Undulating flight call distinctive rolling bubbly unlike any other British bird. Stripy raised head crest. Females sing quietly.
Now another mostly lost of our greatest of singers! JUST WHY?
Ground shallow nest. Brood 1; 2? Need cereal seeds. Insects.
Numbers Plummeted 1970’s. ‘So Villainous Vile.’ What? – Just what has been done to help them since?
Help Skylarks: Undisturbed areas in grassland and crops are now so difficult for Skylarks to find for their nests.
Late-sown crops become too tall to nest in… Pesticides kill their insect ‘food!’ Predation – ‘killing’ by hawks – grey-squirrels – magpies – foxes. Etc!
Albert Einstein – ‘Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.’ “PLEASE HELP” – Nothing Ever Left! – For what ‘we’ Leave – For the Future to Experience.
Skylark – “Amazing song-flight feat of stamina & strength while flapping So hard to lift vertically hundreds of feet up into the air – Loudly Singing Continuously” – Their Present Numbers Unknown…!
