In this case I have suggested you have the Splendid Fairy-wren, Malurus splendens (female), which is also found in Western Australia. Malurus cyaneus is only found in southeastern Australia.

It was spotted at Caversham, north of Perth

Gary, is the location correct with Perth? I'm asking as you don't have the Superb fairy-wren there.

Anyone know if this is a female Splendid Fairywren or a Immature male Superb Fairy-wren?

Yeah, very lucky to find this little fellow, but quite difficult to capture a good shot of them. They are like little energizer bunnies :p
