I went looking for the stone chats along the west Shore but only found this - pipit??
Yes, probably a Rock Pipit (Anthus petrosus), although I don't have a lot of experience with European species of pipit.

I would say that's spot on, as my field guide says: "habituates beaches out of the breeding season..."

A few more K-1 images from the park. I had the parking lot where many people feed the birds to myself, meaning the birds were more comfortable getting close. That led to a camera body change from the K3 to the K-1, brought along for landscape shooting. But, if you have a choice take off the CT or use a bigger sensor, the bigger sensor is the logical choice.

Birds taking care of birds business.

My new toy, Tamron 500mm f8 mirror lens. Still learning how to focus with this beast. Love the bokeh.
On K-1.

All my posts these days are on flickr, so you can see the info by clicking on the photo and scrolling down the page. The problem being I have two ways to get to 500mm, the Tamron 300 2.8 and 1.7x AF Adapter or the DA*200 with the 1.4 and 1.7x stacked. The first two are the DA*200 and stacked TCs, the third is the DA*200 with the 1.4, all on the K-3.
