Wheatear (1 Viewer)

Hello

I saw the, I assume Northern Wheatear, in Poland some days ago...

But for me there are really great similarity with the female Western Black-eared Wheatear, and I'm having a really hard time to see why this could not be that, even I'm pretty sure it's not..

Can someone please help me out, what makes this a Northern and not a Western Black-eared.. The typical white line above the eye on the Western is missing and the colours seems more "orange-ish" as for a Black-eared ..

Thanks ..
