La Gomera Bird Dec 19

I have just taken this in La Gomera. Quite a large bird and no white stripe over the ye so I have discounted a wheatear, as the ones I have seen are only half this bird, and I thought of an Iberian Magpie but the bill looks too narrow ! Sorry ! Can someone enlighten me please

Looks very long tailed - could it be a Grey Wagtail? Iberian Magpie is a non-starter.
