Meadow Pipit?

This bird seen at Ferniegair (NS75) on 29th June 2009.
I've got it as a juvenile Meadow Pipit but I'm not sure.

On second thoughts, I think it might be a Dunnock... Any ideas?

14th July 2009: Have now changed my mind on this being a Dunnock on having seen a good few young ones around. Still no real idea as to what the photo shows!!!
