A few people have helpfully pointed out that it was Leaden and not Satin Flycatcher that I saw on the Gold Coast. I am not familiar with these species and the birds looked much closer to Satin than Leaden in the field guides (blackish rather than greyish). However I had a look at the article on flycatchers in the Jule 2003 Wingspan that pointed out exactly this problem (and even talked about the dubiousness of some SEQ records of Satin Flycatcher!) and showed pictures of dark Leadens that looked like what I saw, with the back a little lighter than a
black head.
