There's a grassland on a hill on the border of this city. It's a golf course really, but it doesn't matter to the skylarks that decide to breed there. To hear them singing as they make these beautiful aerial displays is a thing of beauty. The RSPB website has a snippet of song to tempt you with.

Some of them seem to have brood already. This pair seemed to be bringing food to a nest. But some still made displays, possibly the unlucky ones.
