This Rock Pipit was feeding right below the viewing screen at Mudbank this afternoon. Note the orangey-toned supercilium which is rather well defined, as well as the grey cast to the upperparts. A potential littoralis? Probably not possible to say. It would be interesting to see how this bird looks in dull conditions or in a month's time. 

Seven Goldeneye off Mudbank this afternoon, including this displaying drake. I've included this terrible shot because I so rarely manage to photograph this species for the blog. Little else off there today.
At least 4 Cirl Buntings at the local site today. Also 5+ Yellowhammer, 1 Reed Bunting, 35+ Redwing and 3 Stock Doves. Very few Chaffinches though.
