I think it is but would appreciate confirmation.
For me, the white that extends down the outer feathers of the tail eliminates Desert, Peter, and the drab brown, slightly greyish, mantle , head & throat, coupled with the orangey-buff wash on the breast, fits female Pied best. Compare with https://africanbirdclub.org/afbid/search/birddetails/species/1398/30145
Today, I'm not agree with you, Mark!
This bird fits, for me, not with a female Pied Wheatear!
Female Pied. Tommy may be relieved to know it's certainly not a grebe or heron. ;-)
Relieved I am ;-)
Hi Howard and Tommy,
I would go for Desert Wheatear, but can't rule out Northern!
Do you have more pictures?
No more pictures Peter. It was a one-off and far away.
Feel like female Pied Wheatear to me, but from my previous post regarding this species, it's probably a grebe or a heron ;-)
I think you're correct Tommy. On the basis that there were 4 Male Pied Wheatears in the same location and I photographed another Female Pied.
