According to the RSPB, Rumncoke, songbirds do in fact have regional accents,

"Tweet Of The Day" BBC lark on the radio today, this'll be the 'correct' accent

Just had a few days in the Lake District and the Larks there do seem to have a different accent from the ones here in Lancashire, and that's less that 100 miles away. The Lake District ones seemed to be singing for a shorter flight time than ours as well.

According to the RSPB, Rumncoke, songbirds do in fact have regional accents, especially those which don't travel far. I think its lovely that you 'catch your breath' at the Yorkshire larks' song.

I wonder if Norfolk larks sing, "Hev yew gotta loit bwoy?""
no they sing mind your head bor, theres lots of larks would now be dead if they didnt hve the sense to mind their head.

In my youth in the West of Scotland, we would rise every morning to the song of the skylark in early Summer.
It was wonderful.

Now the small arable farming has long gone and with it many of our wild birds. The land is in "Set Aside", which means it is being allowed to return to its natural state, mostly rushes and small scrub.

It is very many years since I heard the Peesies, Curlews Snipe, no Thrushes, very few Blackbirds......The mornings and especially the late evenings are as quiet as the grave.

The biggest loss in my area is birdsong.

On a trek in the uplands one day we discovered that larks hover by singing and farting at the same time.

Or maybe we made that up :-D

On a more serious note (pun intended) in the summer there are always some up on the ridge above our village between Lund's tower and Cowling pinnacle. We used to hear loads on Kinder when we used to bog trot over there regularly but not been up there for a while so I don't know if it is still the same.

Skylarks need short vegetation in spring for their nesting areas. Spring-sown barley or wheat were ideal, but there's been a big move towards crops sown in autumn instead. By the time the larks' breeding season arrives, the crops are too high. That's been a huge problem for skylarks. Round here they do well in old pasture, meadows (what's left of them) and to a lesser extent in leys. Like many songbirds they are in trouble because of modern farming practices. In the next few years I think we are going to see a big revolt against neonicotinoid insecticides. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that they are a significant threat to both the natural world and to the future security of our food supplies.

Certainly NOT in Berkeley Square - no larls oe Nightingales ! I have always said that although the song (a n'gale sang ...) is lovely Berkeley Square in London is one of the most horrible squares there are in there - it's very plain and ordinary with no redeeming features !! Jo

I sat on the bench in our front garden this morning and a lark was singing its heart out almost directly above my head. I also saw a buzzard lazily soaring around. No red kites today though.
The larks round here manage to nest in the meadows where two farmers keep their dairy herds and there's also have a beef herd. The land is 'breck' (we live in Breckland in Norfolk) which is rather stony, well-drained and shallow soil. It's a good habitat for all sorts of wildlife.
Amorous pigeons, crows and seagulls still managing to decorate our conservatory windows :(

Two larks were singing on the cliffs at Upton, between Bude and Widemouth Bay, this afternoon.
