Whinchat

Whinchat perhaps 08-10-01 near Sarpa
Description:

A rather poor photograph of what I thought at first was a stonechat, which we see quite often. However, this bird has a white supercilium, so I wonder if it could be a whinchat.

Whinchat

Could be!? Not really clear enough to get a decent view. I did wonder about a Wheatear species, but that does not look right, really. The pale throat with a darker area below is odd.

I dare say it is something obvious, eluding me, as usual! Like a Whinchat...
