Hi @Safaridude


I am by no means an expert, but looking at the overall shape and stance, my best guess would be one of the chats or their allies. Leucistic familiar chats have been recorded and this would be my first choice. An alternative could be grey-morph mountain wheatear, but I believe even that colour morph still has some black on the wings. So, Oenanthe familiaris is my guess, but I look forward to being corrected as necessary.
