I was rather intrigued as to why the lower bird is completely lacking the rufous colouring on his underparts, which is so clearly seen on the other bird.

Well they're both Coal Tits (when in doubt I look for the second wingbar) and it's an intriguing comparison. There seems no obvious reason why they should look so different, other than to deliberately annoy birdwatchers :giggle:. Nicely taken, Delia.
