SKYLARK (Alauda arvensis)
Biodiversity > Birds > Rare visitors and vagrants

Vagrant. Three records. Two birds were seen by D. Lamm, B. Hall and J. McKean on 3 September 1963 (McKean & Hindwood 1965). Five birds seen by Glenn Fraser on the Airstrip on 16 June 1982 and again at the same place on 26 July 1983 (G. Fraser in litt.). Given the timing of these records, it is likely the birds originated in New Zealand (see also Fraser 2004).
