Tree Pipit


Another bird notified by “the rare bird alert”.  This was interesting because this pipit  feeds on the ground so the perception was that it would be difficult to find.  However with people on site and patience, it could be located.  One was able to get reasonably close before it flew into the nearest tree.  It however soon flew back.  A great sighting,  luckily it remained in the Wonderboom NR (Tshwane North) at the braai area for some time.  Unfortunately by the 21st  Feb 2016 it seemed to have departed.
