Can I also guess?
Syrian juv. Lack of postaurical stripe, touch of pink in the middle of the breast.
I don't know if the tails is visible enough, but one can suspect that there's not much white.
What about the undertail coverts? Can the Greatspotted juv show such pale pink there?

Yes, that's right Szabi, a juvenile Syrian. Buy, yes, juvenile Great Spotteds can also be pink on the undertail coverts and ventral area.
