Skylarks may be occasionally singing over the fields again, but they have not yet settled back in their territories and it should be considered lucky if one hears their music coming down from the skies. There is another lark, however, to look out for on cold eastern beaches, particularly in Norfolk and Lincolnshire. This is the shore lark, which can sometimes be found there consorting with other Arctic visitors, such as snow buntings. The shore lark has a yellow face, a black mask and a black throat, so is very good looking at its best. In spring it even develops two tiny black horns on its head. On the bleak, lichen-covered tundra, where it nests on the ground after returning north, the shore lark builds a small wall of pebbles around its nest to keep the wind off its eggs and chicks. Like our skylark, it sings in the air above them, but its voice can be blown away by the wind.
