Meadow Pipit Anthus pratensis

This little songbird was a delight to see as it suddenly appeared on this coastal stonewall before me. Present all year round, common and widespread, it is found in various grassy habitats, but favours rough grassland, heathland and moorland. It feeds on invertebrates on the ground. Unfortunately, like many of our birds, they have seen a decline over the years and are of an Amber status.

    • Thank you, Ark πŸ™‚ Threat to habitat from intensive agricultural practices. A lot of species have suffered a decline here since the 1970’s because of this, sadly.
