Hi all,

I saw some pipits on Tai Mo Shan last Sunday.

3-4 of them flew among trees and grasses nearby the hiking trail.  I believe they are Richard’s pipits.

Another one was, by itself, hopping between a couple of big rocks and the ground on top of the hill, not less than 50m from me. I was unable to take a good photo of it but a bunch of super blur ones - see attached.  Would anyone be able to tell/ guesstimate what it is?

Thanks in advance.

A couple of “close-up” if they are helpful...

Thank you Ivan.

Is Upland pipit still a resident at Tai Mo Shan?  In ebird, the last record there was taken in April 2020 already!  Wonder if anyone has seen it over the last 13 months.
