Any thoughts?

I haven't had any feedback on the well-marked Stonechat I photo'ed at Winterton last month. I post the images again, together with one of an 'authentic' Caspian Stonechat: all input gratefully received!

Interesting bird, may well originate from east of the UK. I think in Caspian the base of the outer tail is white, which doesn't show on your photos. Have you any shots of the underwing?

Thanks for that, Steve: it certainly stood out in the field! When it first flew in front of us, the initial thoughts of the three pretty able members of the group I was with was Pied Flycatcher!
