Unknown Bird Spotted



Date spotted: 6th March - 2013
Location: Zone 5 - Front Garden
Observation: It was the just bigger than a Blue Tit, so around a Sparrow size but slightly bigger. It let me get sort of get 20 feet from it as it was sat in the tree around 2 metres off the ground. I went in to get binoculars but it had flown off. It was a very light colour so a white from its front and a light grey/brown on its wing. I would have said Blackcap but it didn't have a brown or black head.
I also thought Whitethroat but again it didn't match up to its darker wings or white throat.

Also seen on Local park lawn feeding was a small group of Fieldfare and Redwing with one single Mistle Thrush, feeding very close to road.

Weather: Cloudy and Overcast.
Other Species: Blue Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch, Blackbird, Magpie, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove, Redwing, Mistle Thrush, Fieldfare,
