Greater Short-toed Lark Calandrella brachydactyla

The identity of this Calandrella lark caused some hesitation.
The neck patches, face pattern and subdued stippling (rather than well-defined
streaks) on the breast led to a conclusion of Greater Short-toed Lark
but the relatively short tertials and well-exposed primary tips seemed more in accordance with Lesser. The tertials do not appear overly worn. However, only two primary tips are visible, with along gap then to the tertials.
