Shore Lark

Description
This shore Lark is said to have once belonged to Ipplepen taxidermist Charles Garside (1881–1981). The specimen carries a label that may read ‘Quethiock’, which is on the Cornish side of the Plym estuary, and a date of 10th May 1864, but the handwriting is hard to decipher. The species is normally a winter visitor to the east coast of the UK but there are rare and scattered spring records from around the country.
