I've just been alerted to the fact you had 2 species in this sighting - skylark and pipit. Could you remove the second photo (or move it into a separate sighting)

Oops, sorry. Poor quality control there!

I should give the credit for this photo to my partner, Max Campbell.

Hi Jackie this is a really lovely photo. I like the calling and the perch is wonderful. Just a pity it's not native. Peter

Yep, but I gather they are increasingly rare in England, so perhaps we can consider ourselves custodians. As exotics go they seem relatively harmless, although perhaps if one asked a pipit it would not think so. They do seem to be somewhat more common than the pipits along that stretch of road, from Nimmitabel to Dalgety.

Australia has one of the world highest extinction rates. Petty that we can't be custodians of our unique wildlife :(
