Feldegg Yellow Wagtail Tsiknias River 02/05/17 - which sub species

See photo.
I had this wagtail down as plain feldegg , however a few people on another forum have it as the flava thunberghi sub species , while another suggests that it may be a hybrid dombrowskii and thunberghi .
Your opinions welcome,
