In Augrabies.

From this angle I can't see any diagnostic white eyebrow.. Will wait to hear where it was seen before making a call.

Your second bird I would hazard a guess and say Sabota Lark.
its such a common little bird at that time of year and nine times out of ten is the one that is usually seen.
