Tree Pipit

(anthus trivialis)
The Tree Pipit is a summer migrant to Scotland usually arriving in mid April. It favours open woodland with grassy areas as it is a ground nesting bird. It has a distinctive voice - a long descending trill ending with three or four whoop-whoop-whoop notes. Often this song is given in a display flight where the bird ascends some way then flutters back to its perch in a spiraling parachute descent.
