A while ago we were at Flamborough Head and we saw what at the time was called a Rock Pipit and it was ticked by all including me.I have been sent a photo of the bird and i am now in doubt.Is it a Rock or Meadow ?
Thanks for looking :-)
I agree meadow pipit, another indication meadow pipit is leg colour
Thank you Paul.I am going to have a couple of disappointed friends come the morning :-)
Meadow Pipit for me. Rock Pipit tends to have a more smudged and darker appearance.
