The name Shore Lark is derived from the fact that in northern Europe it winters almost exclusively at coastal sites, especially at the edges of beaches or saltmarshes. However, many people prefer the name of Horned Lark as this refers to their characteristic face pattern, black and yellow with two wispy black lines sticking up above the head like horns. These black-and-yellow markings, particularly obvious on adult birds, are the easiest way to identify Shore Larks on the ground. In flight, they can be recognised by a noticeably black tail.
Breeds on rocky mountain tops or Arctic tundra. Winters on shingle, stubble and saltings.
The northern population migrates to the southern North Sea and western Baltic. Southerly populations are resident, however.
