Buff-bellied pipit- not!
A group of top-notch east coast birders managed to pin down the putative bbp and it was re-identified as a very pale meadow pipit showing some unusual behavioural traits. A shame that it was not another 'mega' for the Highlands but I am mightily relieved that I didn't go for it this morning as another 160 mile drive would be an expensive trip for a mipit!
