I saw this bird this morning at Wattamolla in the Royal National Park, but
not sure on it's exact ID. I'm fairly certain that it's a Heathwren, but
I've not seen any sort of Heathwren before, so it's a little hard for me to
be sure on this.
Using Morcombes as my guide, and Google, the bird looks more like a
Chestnut-rumped Heathwren, except in the colour of the eye and the strong
supercillium. It doesn't have the strong white markings in the primaries for
a SH, but it does have some white colour, which doesn't seem to be in any
images I've seen of CRH's.
When I saw it, the bird was by itself in sparse vegetation, as you can tell
from the photos.
