Farmland birds

Farmlands are situated in cultivated, rural environments. An agricultural environment is an area where cultivated plants are grown or livestock are kept. Farmlands exhibit their own characteristic species. Northern lapwing, skylark and Eurasian curlew have all taken a particular fancy to vast farmland areas, in addition to whinchat, red-backed shrike and yellowhammer inhabiting smaller fields.
