Re: Variable wheatear

My bad,

I assumed the mystery was a female. A male, as you say, would be nothing like blackstart.

Variable wheatear?

Have you considered Blackstart?

It would, I think be a little further east than normal, seems the closest known breeding range is eastern Iraq.

Many of the illustrations show the Blackstart to be much more blue/grey but a google of some images shows this to be variable.

Just a thought!

Yellow Wagtail

I have posted this on surfbirds, but would like the opinion of the AOS

Most seem to think this is a channel wagtail

seen near Hereford.
