@MatthewFrawley do you know anyone from COG who’s good with egg ID?

@Mavis were there skylarks or pipits around?

@Liam.m - not at the time however have spotted skylarks there before - not pipits.
Eggs found in a shallow scrape on a fire road.

Ok. Based on that, I’ll confirm as skylark. However, pipit eggs look very similar and if anyone more experienced with eggs knows better then I can change the ID. Definitely pipit or skylark though.
