About this book

The Skylark is one of Britain's most popular birds. However its population has been falling dramatically as a consequence of changes in farming practice and the RSPB has launched a major research and fund-raising campaign to save it from further decline. This book looks at all aspects of the life of the Skylark, from its biology, migratory problems, breeding behaviour and habitat requirements, to its role in legend and folklore. It also discusses the recent decline in population and discusses three closely related species - Oriental and Japanese Skylarks, and the Raso Lark.
