Hello Chris,
agree with Chris!
your bird is a Common Treecreeper. Please note:
-short, relativ straight bill
-broad and distinct whitish supercilium reaching to the forehead
relative long hinclaw in relation to toe.
-minor features in the wing, including restricted white tip to alula, large step in primary spacing, are better for this than for St-Treecreeper
