Hi All, I'm from Fareham on the south coast of Hampshire.
I'm trying to engage my children (2 and 4) and we have had a new visitor to the garden that I can't quite place
Thought it might be a Chiffchaff or a Willow Warbler but the beaks wrong. Looks more Finch like
It looks very light and almost Sandy?
It looks like a leucistic female House Sparrow. Leucism is a pigment deciciency which can make birds appear pale or sometimes with white patches or completely white..

It's been about a lot today and bought some friends along!
