Eurasian Rock Pipit (Anthus petrosus)

Strictly a coastal bird, and found only in northern Europe and the along the coasts of Scandinavia, the Rock Pipit is therefore a stranger to most of the region's population, which is a shame because it's an entertaining little bird.

When disturbed they will fly low to a new vantage point, but usually not very far, so they are easy to track once you find one.

Having said that, they are restless little so 'n' so's & rarely remain still for very long, so photography often has to be done 'on the go'.
