I id'd this as Water Pipit (Ras al Khor 26 Feb) and labelled the image as such, but something keeps niggling. Any thoughts?

In UAE bird sightings
We went birding in Mushref Park this morning (5/3/2020), very successful including 2 Oriental Honey Buzzards and at least one Shikra amongst several Sparrowhawks. At the main visitor centre we were stunned to discover a Black Drongo (tiny white spot at base of beak). Even more stunned to realise there were actually two there. Photos to follow :)

2 visits to Ras al Khor 26 and 28/02/2020. Both times a distant Accipiter, poor photos of the one on 28/02/2020 attached. Rufous cheeks and lack of obvious dark wing tips makes me think Common Sparrowhawk, but Shikra (a species I'm not familiar with) is the only one recorded on Ebird at the site and Sparrowhawk apparently not recorded at Ras al Khor, so looking for your thoughts. Thanks. Su
