Hello everyone, is this a Yellowhammer, female? I need valuable feedback on this significant record. It was already suggested as such by couple of people on Facebook but I need to be more careful with this individual.

Because if turned out so, it would be the 2nd National Record for Pakistan. Thanks in advance :))

With such a rather unmarked head, it looks like an Ortolan Bunting (first winter) to me, which would also be a very good record for Pakistan.
The bird to exclude would of course be Grey-necked Bunting.
