Steve asked for info on sorting
out Singing Bushlark from Skylark
 and R/ Pipit in flight. In my
expierience I look for the white 
trailing edge of the wing in a Pipit.
and the difference in size bewen
the Bushlark and the other two
is very noticeable in flight the
Bushlark looking light a large 
moth with very fast fluttering of the 
wings. The songs of all three are
very much different once you get to
know them, the Buslark as a 
song more similar to the Skylark
than a Pipit, but instead of the song
being continues like the Skylark it 
stops and starts with much more
harsher notes. The Pipits flight song 
seems not to much different to the 
call it gives when post sitting.
hope this helps Steve
