The long primary projection. It's a Greater Short-toed Lark.

Yeah, maybe I should have gone for one of the more long-winged subspecies of Lesser Short-toed Lark, do you think that's the correct answer?

The pp on the first image looks almost excessively long for GSTL, and the 2nd image appears to have a shorter pp? (presume different bird?) perhaps LSTL?

Based purely on the streaking which tbh isn't that visible, I'd have gone for LsTL
