Odd Sparrow

Hi, I saw this sparrow looking bird in our garden for the first time today. It was with other sparrows so I can only assume it is an odd varient. I took this from my garden just out side Fareham in the UK. Any pointers are welcome. Sorry for the quality, but it was over cast and no tripod at hand.

Many thanks, HB

Just a partly leucistic sparrow.
BTW, they are now breed in many different mutations by bird breeders.

Thanks for the quick reply - I have to say I did start to get a little excited until I realised it was very sparrow like !!
