    what type of Wren ? - ID please

    I noticed a movement in the dark and I snapped this shot. It was not until I played with it on my computer that I saw the shape. The book gives me several options from, Hooded Robin, to Restless Flycatcher, and others. It was flying loops through the fence after insects.

    Looks like a Grey Fantail to me, Grumps...great time wasters as they flit about feeding
    I was absolutely delighted when I discovered every lamp in my house had been stolen.
    CC more than welcome..."I can't be offended" so go for it. Also, feel free to post your ideas with an edit if ya have the time. Thanks......

    Gazza .... You are correct with the flitting. Even when it came out into the light a little after insects, I could not see what it was.

    My book has a Grey Fantail in it, but the sketch is more on the brown side.

    The Grey Fantail on the link above in also brown, but it has a blacker version also

    There's plenty around, but I've only come across them a few times, and they've always been in the shade.

    Here's a quick link

    Gazza is right with the ID.
    The markings around the head are quite distinct as this shows,
