The Soaring Life of the Lark
Skylarks are the heralds of our countryside. Their music is the quintessential sound of spring. The spirit of English pastoralism, they inspire poets, composers and farmers alike. We watch as they climb the sky, delight in their joyful singing, and yet we harm them too.
In the trenches of World War I they were a reminder of the chattering meadows of home. Perhaps you were up with the lark or as happy as one. History has seen us poeticise the bird but also capture and eat them.
The Soaring life of the Lark explores the music and poetry; the breath-taking heights and struggle to survive of one of Britain's most iconic songbirds.
