Pipits Abound

Meadow Pipit

Meadow Pipits move to the South in winter are abundant around the coast line especially Portland where I photographed these images.
Some migrate to continental Europe in winter.

The ones I observed were moving around the grassland along with Wheatear.

Rock Pipit

The Rock Pipit likes rocky shorelines and are easy to find around Portland all the year around. 
Most of our birds are resident, but some arrive from Scandinavia in winter.


  1. Hi Roy,
    Great series of these Pipits!
    We see these birds here too. Especially in coastal areas.
    But I've never been able to make such beautiful pictures!
    Regards, Maria

  2. Wow Roy, you've made wonderful photo's of the pipits! I like no. 4 the best, with the big mosquito in its beak, lovely. And you managed to photograph Rock pipits, which I think is very difficult, so you did a great job out there.
    The wheatear in the header is also beautiful. I enjoyed your photo's.

    Kind regards,

  3. Nice photos. We have also much meadow pipits in our area. Greetings Caroline

  4. Great to see these pipets.
    You could photograph them very close up.
    Greetings, helma
