Unfortunately the regime cut mt internet connection before I posted some extra pictures of the pipit.
Although I have been evacuated from Libya, I am honour bound to post that blog. A delusional leader will not stop me from posting what was an ordinary day to day blog!
pipit meadow or bluff bellied?
Pim said "In your last post there is a picture of a Meadow Pipit that looks a bit "off" It could just be me but the streaking on the flanks, the shape and blackness of the breast spots and malar region as well as the semi-plain back and pale lores all remind me of Siberian Buff-bellied Pipit (japonicus). Worth a second look I think"
meadow pipit or buff bellied?
What do you think? I have no experience of bluff bellied pipit but I looked at Collins and can see Pim's point.

Please reply to me or post comments. I would love it to be buff bellied but not as much as I want to see a united free Libya that cares for its people and the environment.
