Author's notes

There was a group of small birds in the area when I arrived but most of them flew to a tree a bit further away. This bird stayed for one photo and then flew off as well. I'm not sure whether the other birds were the same species or if it was a mixed group.

Thanks for the suggestion - agree brown-headed. Initially I could not see the differences between the two but it does look like there is a tone change at the top of the head and the eye ring is more visible when enlarging as far as I can go.
