Skylarks, Buckinghamshire, UK in November 2021 – by Paul Ridout

“I went out at lunchtime hoping to see and hear some of the skylarks that gather in flocks in the fields round here.  There were perhaps 50 or 60 circling round, rising and falling depending on whether I was moving or standing still.  I recorded them against the background hum of a leafblower about a mile away, and ran the recording through a high pass filter to cut out some of the wind noise.”
