Water Pipit

Having missed the Water Pipit at Octagon Farm pools the last few winters, it was good to see one there today. A fine specimen too - a peachy-pink suffusion on the breast, blue-grey head and mantle, a small amount of streaking on flanks, with a strong white supercillium and blackish leg colour. The bird was not approachable so definitely one for digiscopers.
