Saw this bird in the Odelouca Valley near Silves in Portugal on 25th November. To me it looks larger than a meadow pipit, (similar size to a lark), and has different markings, and the feathers at the top of the legs are different too. In my books looks like a Richards Pipit, but I'm far too inexperienced to make that as a positive suggestion.
Can anyone help with this i.d. ?
