Thanks, everyone for your help. It seems it is a Western, he sure had me fooled but i am still sure i heard a WT so i guess i will be back there tomorrow for an other look and see if i can get some pics. But the good news for me is i got a new tick :)
The pics i posted were in the shade and i do have some crappy photos showing the eye is red.
@Sandra, the OBO will be most likely be getting ready to breed again at CB as i have not seen them at my birdbath for a couple of weeks. In June and July both adults and 2 Juvies were regular visitors to my birdbath for a drink.

Ah, Geoffrey has been more accurate, and explained why the call was so much like the white-throated -just a bit truncated and mechanical...

This morning at Mulligans i heard a White-throated Gerygone. I then spent about an hour to try and get a pic as it did not look like one but the call did sound absolute to me.I have just listened to the call on line and still sure it was.
I will attach 2 pics (sorry, not the best) 
In the second pic it was calling and i am sure it was a Gerygone call but again it does not look like one to me.
Anyone offer some insight for me please.
