TREE OR MEADOW?
Found a Pipit nest yesterday the thing is we got Tree and Meadow Pipits about the farm they are almost identical to look at and must overlap each other. The nest is on a tump with tree's very nearby where the Tree pipits are singing and displaying constantly. This is the best way to separate these two species as their calls and display flights are very different. In both Tree and meadow the colour of the eggs are very variable so I couldn't really tell from that. I took a quick photo with my iphone but its not very clear. I'd love it to be a Tree pipit as their nests are more difficult to find and as they are a summer visitor it would be very pleasing.
