Meadow Pipit

While out on my walk this morning on Southmoor, I spotted this bird perched on the barbed wire fence.

Meadow Pipits can easily be distinguished from other 'brown jobs' with their very long hind claws as can be seen in these images.

Re: Meadow Pipit

Lovely shots Peter, certainly show the diagnostic long hind claws well.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Meadow Pipit

Nice shots Peter, I have noticed the claws on these wee birds previously as being extravagant in length

Re: Meadow Pipit

Nice images Peter. I have read that at a distance if it starts it's flight song from a fence it is a Meadow Pipit but if from a tree it is a Tree Pipit! Logic is amazing isn't it?

Thank you David. What is amazing is that the Tree Pipit has the shorter claws???? I would have that it would have been the other way round
