Pipit ID Please

Observed this Pipit today on the banks of the Dal Lake in Kashmir. Lack of markings on the breast is confusing.

ID Help please. Thanks.

BTW : The pipits expected in Kashmir according to "Birds of North India" by Grimmettt & Inskipp would be:

Paddyfield Pipit
Long-billed Pipit
Upland Pipit
Tree Pipit
Olive-backed Pipit
Red-throated Pipit
Rosy Pipit
Water Pipit

Looks a bit freaky on my monitor too Tim! I'm not familiar with all the pipits out that way but it looks reminiscent of a Water Pipit. It seems rather streaky on the mantle though, so perhaps not.

Actually its not a very clean image so I had to enhance it a bit. I may have some more images on another camera which I'll post soon.

We can certainly rule out paddyfield, long-billed, tree, red-throated and olive-backed....
don't know what rosy and upland look like however, so can't help any further
