Hi Alvaro, thanks for your suggestion, however there is a small error. This is not an African Stonechat, but what used to be called just Stonechat or Common Stonechat which included 5 variants. I am going to add a link which contains the latest information on this species and is better in its explanation than the wiki link, in my opinion. It is likely to be fully split into 5 new species. The African Stonechat is not seen in Europe, we only have semi-resident European and visiting Siberian on occasions. While they are currentlly still all grouped under Torquata, that is likely to change in the future and the European bird will become a full species as Saxicola Rubecola! I will add the link in the "other" box after posting this.
