My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Tree Pipits put on a great show in the Spring time. Singing loudly and proudly as they display at the tops of trees with some parachuting thrown in for good measure. These birds winter in Africa and Southern Asia, so they'll soon be off on their travels. Hopefully this one I found in the Goyt Valley will have had a successful breeding season.
Unfortunately, the day I saw this bird there was little sunlight, so the colours don't really do them justice.
Look as those long hind claws, although not as long as the Meadow Pipits.
