Doubts with birds from South Africa (august 2019)

Hi,

I need some help to identify some birds from South Africa. Pictures were taken last august at the Isimangaliso Wetland Park (Western Shores), near the village of St. Lucia.

Pictures 1 and 2 are the same bird. I think it can be a rufous-naped lark (Mirafra africana).

Picture 3: Could it be a Sabota lark (Calendulauda sabota)?

Pictures 4 and 5 are also the same bird. Is this an african pipit (Anthus cinnamomeus)?

Thank you very much in advance,

Antonio

Thank you, Kamba and Jean for your kind help. Indeed, I did not see the malar stripe of sabota, but when I took the picture I did not realize it could be a young rufous-naped lark.

Then I will keep it as young rufous-naped.

Thanks
