Hi all,
I'm a little confused with this Wheatear!
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

It’s very warm breasted despite some scaling on the mantle and greyish tones on the nape - the ear covs are also very rich orangey brown on my monitor - I’m by no means an expert and have only seen 2 eastern BEW (a lot more pieds) but I think melanoleuca should be taken into account
