According to my notebook our impression was it could be immature Waterpipits, middel east ssp coutellii, but I am open for any suggestion
|It is a rather small pipit with rather long yellow, reddish legs.
Note: the pictures are taken in a rather rainy weather
There were 3 birds in the group.
|The underparts are light, hardly any stripes
The birds were rather shy and running and foraging all the time
