Ironically the one bird I have been trying to nail is the Water Pipit, a difficult species ( for me) to identify. Generally there is an overwintering Water Pipit at Marazion, so when I am there I photograph every Pipit I find, in the hope that I capture one on camera. I have seen them fleetingly but on this occasion this one momentarily landed reasonably close for average photography. Again I missed the Bittern but this image more than compensates for that. The Water Pipit is a Eurpean species and a short distance migrant. Overwintering birds are normally found in the South and South Western regions of England.
