Northern Wheatear confirmation (France)

Taken today in Western France, it seems that the date is really unusual.
Can you confirm?
Thanks

Northern Wheatear it is. Whatever it picked up with it's tail... May be this is the reason for it's delay on the way to Africa?

Alula seems to contrast with wing, and dark markings on coverts seem too pale for Northern. I suspect Isabelline too.

Probably the bird is cold and fluffy, so coverts are not well shown.
Northern that is still north it is.
