The tawny pipit (Anthus campestris) performs a quaint mating display – flying up to 30 metres while singing. Male and female tawny pipits have the same plumage which, between late July and September, moults to reveal creamier coloured feathers. It is very similar to Richard's Pipit, but is slightly smaller, has shorter legs and a shorter dark bill. Its breeding range extends from Europe eastwards into central Asia. It migrates for the winter to Africa, southern Asia and India.
