Olive-backed pipit - St Brides

I met Allan Hansen at St Brides first thing this morning. As we walked through the rough grassy area that Dave describes, we flushed a pipit-sized bird. We couldn't relocate it so gave the area a rest. Returning 15 minutes later, we spotted it rooting around the leaf litter beside the stone wall adjoining Cranford, at the pumphouse end. It obligingly popped up onto the wall and then onto a tree branch. Lovely little bird. And yet another pint I owe Mr Astins (he reminds me).
