Not sure what else it could be Andy but the extent of the white eyebrow and yellow undertail don't seem classic?

Edit: I think it's an immature Yellow-fronted.

Thanks Andy.
There is the moustachial stripe that divide to reach the bill and the eye stripe, but could be displaced feathers.
The wing bars are white at the top and yellowish at the bottom, but this could just be the light.
The SASOL 4 depicts the LbC as having a white super and white behind the moustachial stripe, but SASOL Guide to the birds of the Kruger National Park has photos that show it is only white on the female.

Do they hybridise?

I don't think they hybridise Andy but if this were mine, it would go down as YfC.

Many thanks Andy and thanks for the link. That does it for me too. Pity though, it would have been a lifer. Another time, eh!

I can see why it's ringing alarm bells, but I'd be wary of calling this from this pic too. Happy to be corrected, but isn't it a bit further south than you'd expect to find one too? Thought it was a scarce bird in the far north of the park.

That was my first thought but looks to be just in range Larry.

I thought soo too from SASOL but looking at range from xeno-canto it covers the eastern part of the KNP, through most of eSwatini (Swaziland) to just past Richard's Bay.
