Hi @Rob Stevens and welcome to the website! Thanks very much for asking for advice on the bird in your photo. As Paul says it is definitely a Meadow Pipit - they are pretty common here in the islands. We also have Rock Pipits here. See this very useful information about Meadow Pipit identification on the RSPB website - from that page there is also a link to similar birds. https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-w...life-guides/bird-a-z/m/meadowpipit/index.aspx

Please feel free to ask again if you have any further questions about identification :)
