Digiscoped this Water Pipit on the R.Caen a short distance from Velator Quay this afternoon.

Heavily streaked on breast & flanks but belly white. White supercilium which extends from the base of the bill over the eye & tapers towards nape. Greater coverts & tertial edgings are white but I cannot see from the photos the white outer tail feathers.

Legs appear dark in most of the photos but not all.
