Tree pipit? - Two Tree Island, UK

Taken today. I have put it down as a Tree Pipit as it seems a bit bulkier than a meadow and also has a white belly. Am prepared to be disappointed though so grateful for ID.

Agree. On a fantastic flight shot of a Skylark.

Don't feel too bad. They are starting to get scarce (in the UK, in AUS however they were everywhere)....

Its becoming one of those birds you never get bored of.

Great shot. Wrong time of year for a Tree Pipit too - one of our summer migrants.
