Seen today in my garden. Not seen before.

Body of a sparrow, head of a tit. Hybrid sparrow? 

Apologies for poor picture. I was up high with only my phone camera to hand.

  • It's a male Reed Bunting, Kiera.

  • Hello Kiera, you have a lovely male Reed Bunting there ! they do visit gardens on occasion although not commonly so you are lucky to see this handsome fellow in his striking breeding plumage. Well spotted.

    x-post with Tony  !

  • Just wanted to give you a wave, from one Kiera to another (same spelling too!) :)

    Definitely a reed bunting. They seem to become so much more visible about now.
