Any suggestions as to the racial identity of this bird? or possible parentage. Current thoughts: dark "channel" wagtail, Iberian / blue headed integrate, 1st summer Iberian. Or just impossible ?? photographed Anglesey, Wales 29th April 22.

The lack of responses suggests the answer may be " just impossible"

Why not just a 1st-summer flava?
They often have a partly whitish throat.
The worn, brown primaries indicate that this bird is a 1st summer indeed.
