western France Pipit ? Water or Meadow ?

Hello
taken yesterday on a water logged meadow at the estuary of the Vilaine
Brittany

there are lots of meadow pipits here
this one just looked darker than the others

clear eye-stripe
outer tail feathers white

light coloured legs not reddish

what do you think ?

cheers
