Rock Pipit?

Observed: 7th August 2013 By: arnolds

Description:

A dead bird, 16/17 cm long, found near the A58 above Littleborough, just over the Yorkshire border from Lancashire. Moorland country, though this bird was actually at the side of a track. My friends and I thought it might be a rock pipit, but we were not at all sure. The pale tips on the breast feathers in the second picture should help with identification, we feel. Thanks for any suggestions.
