OK - This is my second attempt and apologies for earlier incompetence.
This bird was in Devon on the the Thurlestone Golf course right by the cliffs overlooking Thurlestone Bay. It ate a large green caterpillar. It was smaller than a Thrush, but bigger than a Great Tit.

I openly confess to not knowing what bird this is so put it out to a friend of mine in the know.

Google confirms his answer as a Desert Wheatear. A rare sight by all accounts so well spotted.

From memory, not had the chance to check it out but the bird reminds me of a wheatear?
