Closest I can get to this one is Levaillant's cisticola. Mainly because I can't get it to look like anything else. Photo quality doesn't help. Was seen in a bush at campsite just around sunset.

Thanks in advance, Michael

Cisticolas are notoriously difficult. :|
It's definitely not a Levaillant's - the back is far too plain. I think it might be a Neddicky. :whistle:

The bird in your 1st post is a Neddicky, and 3rd post is also a Neddicky.

Thanks a lot MattAxel. Slightly confused fused with the first one with the very short tail though, is that a youngster, or how does that work :?

I'm afraid I don't have an explanation for why the tail of this bird is so short, but with that colouring it can only really be a Neddicky.
