Hi all,
Werzik, see why you might think it is Tawny.
The hind-claw length however is classic for Paddyfield, with some natural variation excepted. I do not think the upper-parts areas are actually as plain as the rather muted photo suggests. A lot of Paddyfield can and do look this plain. This is an adult bird. I think darker shading within the ear coverts is typical of Paddyfield as well.

Bryon, thank you for your input. I initially thought the tail of the individual is quite long. After looking at it again it isn't that long, is it? It also looks uniform at first but I can see its diffused streak on the back that is not so uniform grey. So maybe you are right that it is Paddyfield pipit.
