I'd agree with pipit, can't really see enough to be confident on which one though. As its in a tree, I'd guess tree pipit

Agree clearly either a Tree or Meadow pipit, but not possible to say for sure which. Meadow do regularly perch in trees so that's not enough to be sure. Needs a better resolution photo to see the face, bill and flanks detail I'm afraid.

Thanks I was hoping it was a Tree pipit, but as you say pictures
is not that good, due to the distance, thanks anyway, and
thanks for welcome.

This bird looks slightly larger than meadow pipit, and the bill
look heavier, upper parts look heavily streaked, unlike meadow pipit
which is quite light,which IMO all point to the bird in the picture
been a Tree Pipit.
