Title: Bird ID please

Heavily cropped phone pic. This was gathering worms on this football pitch on which all the grass has gone yellow due to it being, as the sign puts it, “prepared” for a new pitch.

The contrast is a bit strong for Skylark, but I don't have a better suggestion.

Thanks. Can’t think of anything else it could be.

I just hope that whatever was making the grass go yellow hasn’t had a harmful effect on the worms and hence the birds. There did seem to be an awful lot of worms - they might have been forced to the surface.
