Simonside Skylark

A brief stop at Simonside yesterday for refuelling brought the opportunity to capture some Skylark pics.
It was surprising to be able to walk to within four or five paces without them being spooked and whilst it was quite cool, the sun seemed to fill the Skylark full of energy

A short wander from the car showed a magnificent view of more northerly hills still holding a significant covering of snow

while at Simonside this golden moss brightened vast areas of the ground

Lovely pics of the Skylark, I like the inclusion of the landscape shot for a bit of context. Nice post. Linda

I have to agree with Kirkstallcreatures, the Skylark images are smashing.
