Pipits ID help, Dhaka, Bangladesh, May 2021 (1 Viewer)

Saw 3 pipits just outside Dhaka yesterday morning. Paddyfield and Richards are the default species around here, although Richards is a winter visitor and is probably mainly gone by now. These felt smaller in the field than Richards, and the few times they called in flight was clearly not Richards and didn't sound quite like Paddyfield. Unfortunately I didn't get recordings of the calls.

Blyths is also possible here and has been seen fairly close to here though not as this exact spot. Blyths is still considered somewhat rare in Bangladesh but sightings are increasing dramatically with birding coverage growing across the country.

This feels decent for Blyths to me, but I'm not very confident on pipits.
