Thanks for sharing this lovely photo,
I've never seen one of these, but now I'll be able to recognise one if it should turn up.

Thanks for the photo Dave, I too have never seen one or maybe I could have seen one from a distance and just assumed it was a sparrow.

Brilliant again Dave, your right Catherine, it looks very much like a sparrow, I think they are part of the Bunting family if I'm not mistaken? The reed bunting(emberiza schoeniclus) is widespread near water in Britain, it has a black head and throat and chestnut-brown on its wings and rear, white nape to form a broad collar. lovely bird. Places like Pennington Flash, has a lot to offer.
