I took these photographs (Same Bird - Front and Back View ) at Cresswell on the Northumberland Coast.. a couple of miles south of Druridge Bay. It was one of about 4 or 5 similar birds flitting from bush to bush along the edges of the sand dunes near the 'Drift In' cafe..  I thought maybe it was a Rock/Water Pipit but the beak doesn't seem right... Maybe a Linnet or maybe a Lark ?
If anyone can identify it then please do let me know..

 Many Thanks In Advance ..

Possibly a Reed Bunting? Search Google images and let us know.

The tail shape matches and the beak is similar. On some images the eye mask is also alike but the colours vary from one picture to the next. See what you think.

Many thanks for your reply 'Karmann65', it is much appreciated .. . I would agree that the beak and the tail do look good for a type of Bunting. I'll check out Google Images as you suggest and see how it compares to the Buntings on there.
