It resembles a chat. Young Familiar Chat perhaps looking at the ear coverts and rufous upper tail?

Ja I agree with you WTM.

The only other thing it resembles is young Cape Robin-Chat... but the ear coverts I think is a definite sign of Familiar Chat.

Having spent the weekend in Tanqua, we saw some birds that we think we have correct and others that baffle.

1. I thought it was a familiar chat but it is darker and the has no 'T' on the tail

Thanks in anticipation.
