Description:

a second light coloured lark, whose feathers appeared dark centered and pale fringed, was ambling around the smallstock pens at the agricultural show, ignoring the people who were wandering about. The flanks of this little chap were distinctly white, the ear coverts uniformly light red-brown and hence the suggested ID - Fawn-coloured Lark.
