Thanks Francois for the ID confirmation ...


"CJA Photo,


Only 3 Cisticolas occure in part of the Western Cape namely Zitting, Levaillant's and Grey-backed (and Nedidicky (NEDDICKY) which appears with the Cisticolas in the field guides).


I am sure yours is a Levaillant's Cisticola.


Great shot by the way"
