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.

Saw these LBJs in Mapungubwe last weekend. Thought they might be some kind of Lark, but I have not managed to narrow it down yet. I am only 80% sure that the two in the first pic are the same species:

Thanks in advance,

Thanks again for the help everyone.

Wingman, it looks to me like you were correct on both IDs. I don't remember if the chats flicked their wings or not, I think I was too busy wondering if the pictures would be good enough to ID them with! :)
