Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly common to common along rocky coasts; not found inland. Often seen on rocks and adjacent short grassy areas. Like other pipits, walks strongly and often pumps its tail a little. Plumage relatively dull and dark: grayish brown to grayish above with weak darker streaking; dingy whitish below with heavy and rather blurry dark streaking. Also note the dark legs (pink on smaller and buffier Meadow Pipit, which often occurs in coastal grassland adjacent to Rock Pipits). Call a high, lisping, slightly harsh "ssiip".
