Water Pipit in spring plumage

Rock Pipit
Josh Jones found a couple of juicy pipits on his Baston and Langtoft (south Lincs) patch on April 1. He had a Water Pipit and a Rock Pipit close together, but the Rock flew off and away (so I found out later). The Water was easy to refind, though not easy to photograph, and I also eventually flushed a Rockit while trying to approach the Wipit. I'm not sure if the Rock was the same as Josh's, but perhaps the streaking pattern is a little different... (Click for biggies)
