I spotted this unusual bird whilst out walking. It was on the edge of a field near a hawthorn hedge. It was deep red in appearance with a white collar and slightly bigger than a sparrow.
could anyone help in identifying it? Sorry for the poor picture quality it was the best I could do before it flew off!
