Spanish birds

Hi, I would be gratefull if anyone could identify the bird in the photo. It was taken in the Jalon area of Spain in May this year, the picture does’nt really do it justice as the bird would’nt stay still long enough to get a good close up. It’s plummage was more yellow/cream and seemed to be looking for insects/seeds! on the ground. Many thanks. Martyn

I think this bird could be a Black-Eared Wheatear {Oenanthe hispanica}but this is only a guess.....
