Olive-backed or Red-throated Pipit in Hatta
Is it an Olive-backed Pipit seen near Hatta Lower Damp opposite Hatta Hotel yesterday. Usually Red-throated is not as wary as this one was and it preferred ground cover vegetation by the bank of the dam than the edge of water.

Pink bill rules out Red-throated, Reza, and as the ear coverts don't have a strong pale spot, I'd say this is a Tree Pipit.
Thanks a lot for the confirming he ID. Best wishes
