Hi,

Apologies that this is a very poor image. I did not have my camera so my friend took one with his snappy and my phone took this one. He thinks it is a Corn Bunting but is not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

Hello Rob,
I need the original picture to be sure, but first jizz look after reading your comment was it is indeed a Corn Bunting. Reason:
  • I am biased, as the observer who saw the bird and the original picture has identified it as a Corn Bunting
  • I think I can make out the right colours, and shape (=I cant see much wrong for a Corn Bunting)
  • The bird sits exposed on a branch, like a Corn Bunting does (yes other specied do this, too)
Is it possible to see the original picture?

I'm 99% sure it's a corn bunting, as the stripes on it's body, beak, body shape etc match a corn bunting. If you could send the original file that would be helpful to be 100% sure, but otherwise it's still pretty clear that it's a corn bunting.

Would it be possible to see the photo? - rather than a photo of the photo with a lot of haziness and reduced contrast and reflections and scratches in the way? Thanks.

Hi, Thanks, I will try to get a copy of the original and post it. Cheers
