fantail ? id

I am struggling to ID this bird. I am thinking it is a grey fantail or a mangrove fantail.
Location was on the shores of east lake macquarie, near newcastle.

Thank you,
steve

Hi Steve,

I'm thinking that it's a grey fantail; perhaps someone else could confirm this for us? My belief was that mangrove fantails aren't found in your area. Lovely photo.

On a different topic, I posted a message in the introductions section last week and am still waiting eagerly for someone to reply :-)

Andy.

Thanks andy.
You are right about the mangrove grey fantail. It seems it is mainly in the north-west of W.A.
.
I always forget to check geographical distribution.

And i am off to the intro threads to welcome you. :)

cheers,
steve
