fighting pipits

these two male Tree Pipits were having  a battle on the edge of a territory; most of the stand offs were on the ground but at one stage they went up together fighting in the air but the AF was slow to pick them up initially; as shown one took a few down feathers out of the other bird and appeared to be pushing them into the other birds view as if to show its dominance before dropping them; both birds then split up and the action quietened down
