Meadow/Rock

The left hand bird is a Meadow Pipit, with pale legs and neater streaking below. The right hand bird, with darker legs, smudgy streaking and a long, heavy bill, is a Rock Pipit.

Meadow and Rock

Ian is spot on. I suggest you remove the Rock Pipit photo and resubmit it as a separate observation. A nice comparison though.

All the best.
