N E England coastal I.D. request

Whilst photographing Oystercatchers today, the bird seen below landed close by and I got this one shot of it.Could it be a Redwing? As I often point out, I enjoy photographing birds but IDing them isn't my strong point, so help is appreciated, thanks

I would say a Rock Pipit, although it does look a bit pale, but that may be the lighting.

Thanks for that. Sadly I only got this shot, and that was facing towards the sun, so the colours may well be less than perfect.

Its a Rock Pipit, quite probably a littoralis (Scandinavian) one.

Thanks Jane, a winter visitor then. Not a bird I've seen at this location before (North Shields, North Tyneside)
