To me, it looks like a female, smaller horns, yellow on the face not as bright as the male and more streaky. I found a shore lark a few springs ago which was certainly a male, big horns and bright yellow on the face. I could well be wrong though....

There were seven twite on the grass with it which gave excellent close views until they were scattered by a dog walker.
Thanks to Alan for the piccie and letting me know about it.
