Species seems to be a Yellow-crowned Bishop, Euplectes afer (as other people has suggested). It should be a male in non-breeding or eclipse plumage. Note the single yellow feather on the rump, the yellowish crown coming out through the brown feathers (females dont show these traits). Also whitish supercilium with yellowish anterior part to it is typical of Euplectes afer.

I spotted this bird in a bush close to where Brendan and I were busy ringing this morning, fortunately Juhani Kyyrö was close at hand to photograph it - I think it's a female Redbilled Quelea Quelea quelea in breeding plumage. Comments as usual most welcome
