On behalf of Tilly Chirobokow who sent in an email:-

Size: Between a Chaffinch and Song Thrush Tall and slender 
Colouring: 
  • Wings: grey/brown 
  • Chest: rusty red from it's neck down to it's legs 
  • Face: black 
  • Crown: white - like a skull cap 
  • Tail: couldn't see this as it was facing me 
Only stood in garden for 10 seconds then was gone. White crown stood out which is why I noticed it. Never seen it before. Can't find any identification or even similar. Can you help please? 

Thanks Tilly
