According to my notebook our impression was it could be immature Waterpipits, middel east ssp coutellii, but I am open for any suggestion


It is a rather small pipit with rather long yellow, reddish legs.

Note: the pictures are taken in a rather rainy weather

There were 3 birds in the group.

The underparts are light, hardly any stripes O_0743_300.jpg (38955 bytes)

The birds were rather shy and running and foraging all the time
