Not sure it can be a pipit and which?

We saw it around a wetland that had dried (10 Oct. 2019)

Quick first impression is a Pipit, Tawny perhaps.

Same for me - build and leggy proportions looks Tawny.....esque!

Shahrzad - as a bit of a morale booster we made a wartime film about a pair of Tawny Pipits that ‘bred’ in the UK - called.....The Tawny Pipit!

The film was really about keeping secrets, protecting things and the community pulling together, something that was able to push the ‘wartime spirit’ and a feelgood factor following the retreat from Dunkirk. The bird footage is actually Meadow Pipits and the footage taken by Eric Hosking who went on to become the doyen of UK bird photographers and even losing an eye after being attacked by a Tawny.....Owl whilst filming during the breeding season. With the advent of digital cameras and cheap travel we are all ‘Hoskings’ now...

I have posted a Youtube link as it is freely available although whether you can access it in Iran i do not know - i like all sorts of retrospective films particularly in the context of today and location filming is always a must for me in the light of todays CGI and Blue screen technology.

Good birding -

Dear Laurie, I really thank you for your kind attention and explanation about Pipit footage and Eric Hosking who is very respected photography community.I was interested to read more about him.
Yes I agree with you ...we are a new version on Eric Hosking in these days by our cameras and travels ...
Thanks for Youtube link, I can see it by using anti filter.

Be happy
Shahrzad
