Crested Lark

I drove today to East Finland, because of a work trip to Lappeenranta. It's a pretty long drive from home to Lappeenranta, about 3 hours / 250 kilometers, so I decided to take a short break in Lahti. Not for a coffee, but for a quick twitching - as there has been a Crested Lark (Galerida cristata) wintering in Lahti. It was really nice to see this species for a long time - last time I saw a Crested Lark was in May 1985 in Cañaveral, Spain. This individual was very tame, I got several nice photos of it.
