Meadow Pipit – 1894

Anthus pratensis – A common resident.

Mr. Dix says: “Breeds on the mountains and bogs. I have seen this bird on the tops of the mountains, where, excepting the Skylark, it is the only bird to be seen; in such places I have often heard it singing, as it stood upon a stone or a bunch of heath. About September, or the beginning of October, it comes down into the more sheltered parts, following the plough in small flocks.” He adds: “They are constantly to be found in the sheep-fold, running fearlessly about.”
