Observation title should perhaps be "Pipits", because I certainly couldn't separate this from the Tree Pipit by sight.However, the singing from the ground on a short flight, is diagnostic. Small parties seen amongst the bracken and disappearing into gorse-bushes. It was noticeable on the same day that there were plenty of crane-flies around. The two sightings are probably not unconnected.
