Thank you, Werzik ...
Unluckily he didn't show the hind claw ... with the body shape, muted markings on the mantle, general upper-body color and squarish tail-end ... I was somehow dis-inclined to take it as Paddy-field ...
Any definitive pointers to it being a Paddyfield ...

I would agree with Werzik. First of all, it has the jizz of one of the larger pipits. Then it has a longish wedge-shaped bill, dark loral stripe, dark ear-coverts, lightly-streaked crown and upperparts, triangular dark centres to the median coverts, gingery double wingbars and wash on the flight feathers, breast and flanks, and a relatively short tail.

Pipit id.

Hi all,
the tail is not fully grown yet, so it looks proportionally short even for Paddyfield.
The point was made about the hind-claw. Enclose a Richard Pipit's hind-claw, longer than hind-toe, labelled as Paddyfield Pipit on another website. It does not look decurved as some do when seen well.
