This am on the Sandringham Golf Course I saw a bird looking a bit like a cross between a Brown Thornbill (it was that size) and a White-browed Scrubwren.

Viewing conditions were bad and although I saw it several times during 60 minutes I didn't get good notes on much, for instance I noted its tail was much more like a thornbill than a scrubwren tail.

It was rather neat-looking with a plain olive-brown (?) back and cap, whitish underneath - particularly throat - but looking at times like plain grey on the breast and more buff towards the vent. What first grabbed my attention was what looked like a shortish supercilium and a matching area of white beneath the eye.

I'm allowed to take a couple of other people on to the course so if anyone wants to give it a whirl tomorrow please get in touch. I can probably spare an hour or so.
