Spain - Cabo de Gata

Seen in December 2012 at Cabo de Gata, I had these as Meadow Pipits but without seeing the leg colour I'm not 100% sure. I'm not very familiar with the other Pipits.

Looks good for Skylark.

Thanks Daniel, I had considered that but did not think it showed any buff on the breast, does that disappear in winter or is it overemphasized in my book?

not the best angle to see, but I can't see a white trailing edge - I'd go for crested or thekla - but really can't see any of the clinching details, even though the photos are superb.

I agree & I think you'd be able to see the white outer tail feathers in these shots if it were a Skylark. It is a tricky angle though.
