Pipit, Tree

Unread post by wildtuinman » Mon Feb 08, 2016 8:22 am

Surprised that there is not a Tree Pipit thread yet.

It is a rare palearctic breeding visitor to South Africa in woodland glades.

First up - an individual from Rustenburg last February.

And then this one was located in Pretoria on Friday.
