Warbler and Pipit - RSPB Wood of Cree, Scotland - Today

Just as the title suggests, i am not sure if these birds are 1/Reed Warbler and 2/Tree Pipit.

The picture of the river shows where the Warbler was seen

Thirded. Reed Warbler would not have the white through the eye.

While I am sure it is a Tree Pipit, out of interest, how can you distinguish it from a Meadow Pipit based on those photos?

I'm not sure that you can be sure that its a Tree Pipit. There does appear to be a nice contrast between the ground colour on the upper breast and the lower breast in the second pic, but the bill looks pretty long and thin.
