Von Schrenck's Bittern or Cinnamon Bittern, Chinese Garden Singapore, November

Is this a Von Schrenck's Bittern or a female Cinnamon Bittern? The first two photos are of the same individual, and the last three are of another individual. The fourth photo seems to show some grey on the crown pointing to a Von Schrenck's? However the photos are not great so I'm not sure.

Help with ID appreciated.

I don't think the spots on the back are bold enough for Von Schrenck's plus, that is a very rare bird so I'd go for Cinnamon on two fronts.
