Water Pipit

Water Pipit 

I came across this water pipit a few weeks back in the high Alps at Col de la Columbiere where we were just above 1618 metres.

I've always seen them before in Cornwall at sea level.... quite literally on the sandy shoreline at Marazion.

Note the long claws locked around the stem of the plant!
