Artist's Description

A crested lark photographed through the open window during a jeep safari in the Coto Doñana national park in southern Spain.
This species – Galerida cristata – is common to mainland Europe and can also be found in northern Africa and in parts of western Asia and China. It is a non-migratory bird, but can occasionally be found as a vagrant in Great Britain.
Although still abundant its population trend is decreasing.

This was the first time I’d seen this species and my excitement over such a ‘common’ bird caused much hilarity amongst my travelling companions so I dedicate this image to all those who find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
