On my patch we get Meadow Pipits a few times a year. They're usually passing through in the Spring and the Autumn. Sometimes they can stay for a day or two, and at other times they've stayed for a few weeks. This morning I found a pair that were being hassled by the Pied Wagtails. They kept getting chased, but were never scared off and managed to carry on skulking through the grass.
They are a bird that I take for granted sometimes, as they are quite common in the areas that I go birdwatching, but on closer inspection they are really quite a handsome little bird, as I think these pictures show.
You can see the yellow of the bill here.
Lovely olive markings on the back.
