Capsule Nest failure owing to a range of predators was high, but the level and specificity of nest depredation cannot be generalised. Aims To determine fates and predators of Sky Lark nests in conventionally managed arable fields in the Czech Republic. Methods Sky Lark nests in large fields (mainly Maize, Sugar Beet and Opium Poppy) were monitored by means of continuous video surveillance. Results Primary nest fates of 42 active nests were fledging (13), depredation (22), desertion (5… Expand
