Skylark defending their nest

Lovely video footage of 2 broods of geese taking a stroll over the Moorland and if you watch carefully you’ll be able to see a Skylark in the background defending its nest.

Skylarks have seen a dramatic population decline and are now classed as a Red list species, meaning they are of the highest conservation priority.  They are small brown birds with a small crest which they often raise when they are excited or alarmed.
