BirdTrack's picture

Skylarks for my money

I can see why the bird just left of centre might have misled people into thinking it was a Snow Bunting as it appears rather pale-bellied but the dark underwings with white trailing edges (particularly obvious on the bird's right wing) are not compatible with Snow Bunting, which have white secondaries and altogether paler underwings. The following website has an excellent set of images of Snow Buntings in flight which illustrate what I mean:
