Water Pipit sketch

Hopefully this might come in handy with my description of the water pipit at cuckmere. The same sketch is on my description, minus the background, which I doodled on later. Hardly the work of a professional artist, but combined with the notes I took this should hopefully be enough to convince the local records comittee. I have decided the pipit was most likely in moult, hence the streaking on the breast and a lack of a pinkish flush on a bird which otherwise looked perfect for a summer-plumaged individual.


  1. Hi Liam , cool drawing , i tried for water pipit at my local patch today but failed, always next time i guess

  2. the committee will probably think it is a dusky thrush...!
