Little Egg

Hi Dr Bug

A difficult one but I will have a go at possible Skylark as an ID. A Meadow Pipit would normally be a little less pointed at the end.

Certainly not 100% sure though.

egg ID

I'd say the egg is far too big for either of these species mentioned. In fact I'd go for something much bigger - probably a magpie.
