Water Pipit - Anthus spinoletta

Pictures by Ray Tipper - More about Ray...

The Water Pipit is slightly larger and darker than a Meadow Pipit, its (usually) dark legs, only faintly streaked upperparts and conspicuous, pale supercilium being useful distinguishing features. A winter visitor that is seldom found far from water. Possibly declining in the Algarve.
