It's a cisticola. My guess would be Rattling Cisticola.

These two, the first seen in the Parfuri area and the second near Punda Maria, both on 17 October 2008, have me stumped :? I think they both must be either larks or pipits, but which I can't work out ... or perhaps I'm well off the mark :roll:
