Water Pipit City!

A walk across Neath saltmarsh with Mark Hipkin revealled how good this site is for Water Pipits. Although 4 were seen well enough to id to species, maybe as many as 15 birds were seen in total. Most typically only gave flight views, but a group of a dozen or more birds, all giving Water/Rock Pipit calls, showed white bellies and white outers in flight. 2-3 of these seen on the ground were indeed Water Pipits. Never seen so many together in our area!
