Subspecies

As mentioned on the other bird - having refreshed my memory the criteria are <65 degrees for carbo and above 73 degrees for sinensis with 98% accuracy. This with the supporting rear point of the gular patch behind the eye and shape of the white mirroring the patch it could well be sinensis and I withdraw my ID of carbo.
