    No. Wasn't very small. My first thought was a flycatcher. Size, beak etc. Looks a lot like the Bluegrey Flycatcher. But west coast isn't within his range.

    Hard to tell with the picture not so clear (especially the tail) but I'd suggest Sickle-winged Chat

    It's always a challenge to ID from a pic because size and colour can be very misleading particularly if it's a heavy crop.

    The obvious white eyebrow, little white line below the eye with the black line from the base of the bill running through the eye and the white tip to the tail (which is diagnostic) points me towards Karoo Scrub-Robin.

    +1,
    but look at the wing tips and the way they're held.

    I thought of that and you are correct that they usually have a sort of hangwing look but there are moments that the wings sit quite normally like between wing flicks, just before they take off, after they land.

    I might off course be completely wrong.

    Yip Alex!
    LBJ's and a few others are still a real challenge for me but, ja-well, I try!

    you shouldn't take too much strain over LBJs.

    usually the hard part is getting the pellets out.

    I find that if you cook them until they are soft you can leave the flesh and pellets in the pot.

    A bit late on the thread of course, but I concur with JennyB on the Karoo Scrub Robin. We were there last week, and they were all over the place at Duinepos chalets.
