She looks like a female house Sparrow to me (Passer domesticus). What is more interesting is what she has in her beak?
Anyway, she looks thoroughly cheesed off.

Thanks to all for comments, I see the Sparrow now. The wet made the feathers darker, and also I haven't looked to closely at female sparrows, similar problem with some female ducks, unless with their mate.
 
She's got a Green-veined White!......I would have thrown my camera at her to release the poor creature........but then I am 'quite bonkers'!
