Pipit species spotted on the coast at Mevagissey, Cornwall.
No interactions present.
The dark legs are the easiest way of spotting this often overlooked species
Thanks for the tip. I did compare both meadow and rock pipit species but couldn't make the exact I.D. The differences seem so subtle.
The streaking on the Rock Pipits chest and belly appears smudged, whereas that of the Meadow Pipit is always more clearly defined.

It's good to hear these I.D hints and tips, most guides don't cover these kinds of nuances.
I'd recommend Svensson - the Collins guide with a black cover which has very good text
