    Comments: See discussion in birdforum http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=352034
    Forum concluded it is an Iberian chiffchaff though one birder was uncommital.
    Most of the population of Iberian chiffchaff should fly this way yet almost all are overlooked. I am not surprised. it took a lot of effort to find a good candidate.

    Comments: Also called Seebohm's wheatear. Virtually all winter in Mauritania or northern Senegal. This one is female. They are very often overlooked as they are similar to both desert wheatear and black-eared wheatear. Note the long bill almost like a hooded wheater for length. Also there are signs of some blue-grey feathers on the back. A western black-eared wheater would have orange-buff fringing on the wings.
