Hi Naomi

This bird looks like a young Afican pipit.

A few more that I'm not quite sure about :hmz: all seen along Darling Hills Road in late December 2012.

2. I first thought that this was an African pipit, but now I'm wondering whether it may rather be a longbilled pipit?

Yarwell... these things take time...

The second bird is ALSO a juvenile bird which makes the ID doubly difficult: usually the pink tinge to the bill would clinch the ID as long-billed, but in juv African, the bill also shows some pink. Cryptically the hind claw is hidden... that would give away the ID in a flash! I need more time... Or another picture!

Does this help at all? And to help me in future, what would be the difference between the hind claws?

African pipit you have here. It's. Hind claw is long and the LBP's is short
