Rufous Fantail

I snapped this lovely little bird on the Senses Trail Circuit at Binna Burra.
It is a short bushwalk for the blind, or blindfolded children, to hold a rope as a guide and use their other senses to discover what's in the rainforest.
We didn't do it blindfolded, but the kids did love holding the rope.
And this little birdie loved sitting on it.

As I always do when I photograph a new bird, I Google research it to discover what it is.
This one had me completely stumped.
I thought it was a willy wagtail but I'd never seen one this colour before.
All searches came up with nothing, and so last night I turned to Twitter. 
And as always, Twitter knows everything.
Thanks to Leonie, I now know that it's a rufous fantail!
