Meadow

I agree that the flank streaking is almost absent, which is unusual for both species. However, nothing about the head pattern suggests Tree Pipit and I think actually the hind claw looks long on the nearest foot (though it is very fuzzy).

Pipit

I hate pipits!

The face pattern seems very weak to me - probably indicating Meadow as you say. But a confusing bird. Somehow the bill looked stout to me - but nothing very much in that either.

I bow to the majority view!

Thanks for the comment.
