Head scratcher

This was a real head scratcher for me. I had several guides and changed my mind several times, just made the wrong call in the end. Thanks for confirming the ID, regards Chris

Rock / Meadow Pipit

I'll put up a Meadow P. sighting to show how much brighter and more
defined the coloration is compared to Rock P.

Thanks Tony

Its a new species for me, not seen many pipits before, that would be most useful. Regards Chris.

Dark legs

Dsrk legs are often a good starting point, in separating Rock Pipits, but overall they are much greyer and the smudgy streaking below is also useful
