Skylark – 1894

Alauda arvensis – A common resident; reinforced by migrants in the autumn.

Fairly common and distributed throughout the county. Mr. Dix says: “More numerous in the mountains than in the more enclosed parts; certainly not so common as in England, but I think there can be no doubt that we have an increase of numbers in the autumn, at which time they come more into the valleys.” We never saw in Pembrokeshire such large flocks of Skylarks as we have noted in England flying before approaching severe weather in the winter.
