Greenland wheatear

i reckon this pic taken by fran44 is a classic adult male greenland wheatear. Today in and around the Blackshaw head area I saw redpoll and siskin displaying in one of the plantations,Grasshopper warbler reeling from a large area of Juncuss.10 Northern Golden plovers including 4 adult males and a Greenland wheatear.The Brambling at smith house lane is a female in breeding plumage...must be one of the latest in the Halifax area.

A bit more coloured in real life as well. Saw one wheatear up there this evening but it wasn't this bird.
