On behalf of Peter who sent in an email:-

Larger than a wren smaller than a sparrow, plumage tope, yellow stripe over head. Wings when closed have white / black, coloured strips.

Can anyone identify?

Goldcrest is the only bird that springs to mind fitting that description (except for the size).

The Goldcrest is in fact smaller than a Wren and is Europe's smallest bird.
