Zitting cisticola
Cisticolas are quite difficult to identify as they come under the heading of LBJs. I think this is a Zitting by the sound it makes. The other name is Fan-tailed Cisticola - I didn't see it fan its tail so I may be wrong! Taken at Avis dam, Windhoek, Namibia

You've taken a super picture of the cisticola Matt. He posed beautifully, didn't he.

I can't confirm (nor deny) whether your Id is correct though, as I wouldn't know one if it bit me on the ... ummm... nose LOL. If you want to be sure, you could ask in the [COLOR="Blue"]ID forum[/COLOR].
