Hi all,
still do not think these are vittata, pied wheatear. Suggest Andy would need to eliminate the eastern type of black-eared wheatear with the males being black and white and some with a black throat. Some have illustrated twenty variants of western, black-eared, and still counting, presumably Eastern goes through similar plumage stages. Working on the assumption that Andy sees pied, pied vittata and perhaps even Cyprus Pied regularly in the autumn.
