Twite? Scotland
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hope someone might be able to help to ID this bird sighted on Handa Island in Scotland in early August this year. Possibly a Twite?

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks everyone. Do you know if it is male, female or a juvenile/immature?

I believe that the extent of pinkish colouration on the rump patch would need to be seen to sex it & the wear / moult limit on the greater coverts to be visible to determine age.
