Hazel in the Gironde estuary, France
In reply to Marie C:
This is a water pipit. Almost white underside with that telltale white stripe behind the eye. They remind me of rock pipits that have had a peroxide rinse. In summer they get an attractive peachy flush to their upper breast.
Happiness is an adult Hen Harrier that hasn't been shot, trapped or poisoned. Happiness is a rare commodity in the English uplands.
