    Which Pipit?
    You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way and the only way, it does not exist.

    Has anyone tried the Merlin Bird ID software from The Cornell Lab (2,000+ species).
    Will identify from photo or from information supplied (rather limited in my view).
    Free to download ...

    Rock Pipits are said to have 'dark' legs.
    It may be the light, but the legs on this bird appear to be light/pink.
    When/where was the picture taken?

    Taken last week, high Pennines, Lancs/Yorks border. Other pics suggest legs are pinkish.
