Seeing Scandinavian Rock Pipits at Flamborough by Martin Garner
Two different subspecies of Rock Pipit occur at Flamborough. In Bridlington harbour, the local ‘Rockits’ can feed at your feet all year, while the south cliffs of the Great White Cape supports a small breeding population. Each autumn and winter a migrant wave of ‘Scandinavian Rock Pipits’ subspecies littoralis arrives from near and far parts of Scandinavia.
