» Most probably ssp variegatus (which will change name to ssp hemprichii in future? And ssp armenicus will then be ssp variegatus. Very confusing). This bird appeared to have less white in tail than would be expected for Variegatus - but still more than should be possible for ssp armenicus (half tail appeared white - but this is difficult to judge in field. Very poor photos shows at least half white tail in flight. The bird appeared overall a little paler in the field than on this picture
