The Wheatear stood out like a sore thumb amongst 4 Northerns, it was wet, but I cant believe that accounts for all the plumage details seen here.
-very dark backed
-dark beast with clear cut off from white belly
-T in the tail appears to go up the sides, central stripe fades out
-small pale throat
--pale primary tips
interesting white spot in the fold of the wing just under alula.
Photos are poor but shows most of the features I saw in the dim, dog filled field!
Comments most welcome as I'm a little confused by this bird
|a rubbish pic but check out the colour compared to the normal northern wheatear in the foreground!|
