Unknown bird spotted in garden in Hampshire this morning 06/04/2020 - Bright red wings when flying
Thank you TeeJay - very interesting. Not been on the site before so appreciate the heads up on where to post next time. Best Regards
It's a species of Turacao and I think probably the Guinea turaco (Tauraco persa). Obviously, not native to the UK so presumably escaped from someones collection.
Incidentally, if you want something identified it's better to post it in the Identify this forum otherwise it may not get noticed. I only saw your photo in the Gallery by chance. Nice bird to see.
