I reckon 2438, 2514 and 2524 are all Eurasian Skylarks and the remainder are Australian Pipit. Skylarks often show a small crest that I don’t think I have ever seen in a pipit.

I returned to Weston this morning and sat in the middle of the activity in an attempt to photograph my mystery bird.  There appear to be two species of birds there, one of which is an Australian pipit.  However, there is another distinctly different little bird, Nos 2524, 2438 and 2514.  This one I would like a little help with identifying. (These numbers are the last 4 digits in the name beneath the image when you open it on FlickR.

The birds that were making all the noise really sounded exactly like the recording of the Eurasian Skylark I listened to yesterday.
