Looks like this bird has a barred tail (photo 1).
Not sure if this throws it's gender into confusion or not?
Sean, Thanks for pointing out the barred tail, I have added a further photo of the same bird and this confirms the barring but all show a grey head! Immatures, and females, have barred tails but usually seem to have moulted to grey by the time they get their grey head.
Unusual, but I stiil think the grey head steers it towards male.
Yeah, i'm not at all certain. Maybe it is a young male?
Certainly it's possible for females to have grey (barred) tails (a local one has) and even on rare occassions a grey head but never the blue/grey like the male.
