      Thanks Yoav
      The following images are also from Morjim, and need confirmation, I thought Blyth's Pipit

        I think these are again Paddyfields; they seem small and quite dainty, a hint of a loral line on some (Paddyfields variably show this), centres to median coverts more like Paddyfields.

          Hi Brian

          It is beginning to look like Paddyfield Pipit is very variable indeed, if you don't mind me posting more images (I have lots), I shall carry on with another two from Morjim
          and three from Carambolim Lake

          images can also be viewed here. http://www.tomtamsnaturephotography....php?type=Birds Pipits for identification

            I find the consistently pale lores and quite concolorous buffy underparts quite odd for a Paddyfield. Having said that, they all look pretty leggy. These nominate birds look a lot more buffy/peachy underneath than the malayensis race we see in Malaysia.
