On behalf of Robin (who sent in an email) can anyone help to identify this bird?
Can you help me ?? I have just seen a bird I have never seen before I have lived in the same area of south Warwickshire for 73 years, it was on the neighbours lawn pecking for food.
We stopped the car as the colours were different to our usual birds, it flew into a tree after a few seconds, it was about woodpecker size, light grey body black head
black and very bright blue wings, it was the bright blue that caught our attention.
I went back with camera 10 mins later with no luck
