Ethiopia--Awash NP Gillett's Lark?

Hello, does this look like Gillett's Lark to you? The bird was a little hunched, which hid some other field marks, but the brown chest spotting, bill shape, and face patterns suggest Gillett's to me. Let me know what you think.

Edit: this was yesterday morning, Feb 10, in the southern section of Awash NP.
