Hello

Please could you identify the bird in the attached photo. It lives on an arid South Turkish island near the mainland with goats and rabbits as company,

Thank you

    Tony,

     

    It is a wheatear, and I'm fairly sure it is a Cyprus wheatear, Oenanthe cypriaca.

    The thing that erodes my confidence a little the the pale colouration on the throat, but in breeding plumage that area does chance.
