In Search of Duponts Lark

Another early morning excursion in search of the highly elusive Dupont's Lark,left the hotel
around 0650hrs it was -5oc on route a Barn Owl flew across the road .We arrived at an area
called La Yunta on the road to Madrid.
On arrival in the dark  up to dozen birds were singing like vampires they are not keen on the light,
it was difficult but I did locate one on a rock I called for Johns scope viewed it then it moved I was
sure as the plumage and beak was right but John remained sceptical.
The song steadily reduced as it got lighter,on the return another hen harrier and a couple of Jays.
