A Skylark Fight

One of the advantages of going anywhere with The Raptor is that the local bird life always seems to perform for him.  So it was on Sunday, when we went to Sanna.

It's a joy at this time of year to see the skylarks back, singing as they rise from the machair into the blue of the sky.  But two of them were intent on what looked like a very serious fight.

As they quarrelled they rose higher.

 Quite how they managed to stay airborne was a mystery.

Finally they fell back to earth, after which one of them seemed to give up, and was chased away by his rival.
