Black-eared Wheatear 18 Oct 2015 Brightlingsea Lucilla Poston 1 I watched this bird for about 15 mins within 4 to 15 feet away, and with binoculars but very close. Definitely a male wheatear but NO grey on head or back which were buff coloured as was chest. White rump. Black wing feathers. No black throat, Saw it on breakwater rocks by beach huts on south of town. Amazed to see a wheatear there, and absolutely sure it wasn't common wheatear which I am very familiar with, No phone or camera alas!
