Water Pipit

Water Pipit
Six months ago this bird was feeding above tree line on an alpine meadow in southeastern Europe. Today it gingerly makes its way around a reservoir just outside Heathrow Airport. A great bird anywhere and especially today as this was my lifer WATER PIPIT!! Got cracking views through my scope and 'another' grainy record shot:)  Other species of note at Staines were Mistle Thrush, Grey Wagtail, Goldeneye, Great Northern Diver, Black-necked Grebe, Egyptian Goose and Green Sandpiper.
