First Name

Apparently someone got to the Pipit name before me and called it Hebridean Meadow Pipit. The reference coming from the recently published two volume Birds of Scotland. According to my source the picture in the same book labelled as whistleri looks like pratensis and is paler than the individual seen at Newbiggin.

Thats the thing with pictures in books, they vary as much as the birds!

I can feel a trip to the Hebrides growing on me.
