Blyth`s Pipit

A trip up to Blagdon Lake in Somerset with Andy Bond to look for the reported Blyth`s Pipit and we connected with the bird as soon as we got there as it was in with a small flock of Meadow Pipit`s that were feeding on the edge of the lake , the bird was easy to pick out because of its larger size and different feeding pattern , this is my 3rd one seen in Britain with the first on the Scilly Isles in 93 and my second on Portland Bill in 98 !!.......( One in Devon next please lol )
Other birds of note seen were 9 Great White Egret , 3 Bewick`s Swan , a female Goosander and a Eurasian Treecreeper .
