One more bird today - would it be a Red-throated pipit?

Hi Michal, I would say not to be honest. It doesn't look striking enough on the mantle and the greater coverts should have a wider wing-bar. This looks like a Meadow Pipit to me but the photos make an in-depth assessment difficult.

Meadow Pipits often show paler lines on the mantle but they are not as striking as those of a Red-throated Pipit and the markings on the flanks are variable as well - some are almost as narrow as those of a Tree Pipit but others are thicker.
