Skylarks

I heard the distinctive song of the Skylark whilst walking the dog yesterday; really lovely to hear such tuneful birdsong on such a gloriously sunny early spring morning. I suppose the next thing we can look forward to is the return of Swifts and Swallows; already there appears to be fewer Fieldfares 
Anyone else heard Skylarks over the weekend?

Re: Skylarks

Yeah, I know they are a resident bird rather than a migrant but I’ve done that walk, or various similar walks, all winter for a few years and don’t remember hearing skylarks on anything other than sunny warm days. Maybe it’s a ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’ type of thing where I only expect to hear them on sunny days as their song is synonymous with that type of day and it only registers with me on those occasions…..if you see what I mean
