Madeiran sub-species of Berthelot's Pipit

A species of bird found on the Canary Islands and Madeira and nowhere else as it doesn't like flying all that much! Two distinct sub-species, with the 'madeirensis' encountered by me on the Desertas Islands. The birds didn't seem to be too worried by humans, enabling me to get the above photos.
