Ringed & deformed Skylark - Exmouth




Any of our Ringers recognise this Skylark? It's been hanging around my garden since the snow fell, taking advantage of porridge oats on the patio (with the Song Thrushes). It has a dull grey metal ring on its left leg, a broken lower mandible and what appears to be an extended upper. In pretty good condition and eating OK.
