Shining Flycatcher

It's not everyday you get to see a new bird. On the 14th of February we went to Bullock Point to see what birds were around. As we walked down a side track, I was trying to get a photo of a kingfisher which flew into a tree just in front of me,and Kel said "what was that bird with the reddish back"? I quickly turned the camera around in time to get photos of the Shining Flycatcher, (at first we thought this was a female, but it may be an immature), which neither of us had seen before.
