Water Pipit

Hi there, I am having trouble identifying the bird in the first two pictures, it was close to, but not part of the immediate flock of what I believe were Skylarks and Meadow Pipits (pictures 3&4).
All taken on the Salt Marsh at Walney, Cumbria.

What drew me to it, was the much paler belly and the pale markings above the eye and around the base of the bill. Plus it was as I say off away from the main flock.
