Meadow Pipit

Average Quality
1
Olive-backed Pipit

Flush from the ground to a tree where first seen, flew down to the vegetation soon after. Flushed again to a branch where it sat for a while allowing study and photographs. Marked supercilium, buffish above the lores, black and white spots over the ears. Buff-edged greater coverts contrasting with white-edged medium coverts. Rump not seen. Seemed strikingly bufish overall, perhaps more than any of the bird seen in the area last (2017) Autumn. Note that in spite of visitation of the places where the four birds were seen these were not relocated again since November 22. Bird seen approximately here: 34.018830, -6.818882 .

European Serin

Rough estimate of two large flocks (the largest was distant). The smaller flock should have no less than c.160 (5/5) birds, and was moving actively between the marshes and the nearby trees. The other was equally restless, but much too far for my optics.

1
Eurasian Siskin

Heard.
