Could somebody help with bird identification please – thank you. Location: semi-open countryside, few houses nearby, small wooded area, West Yorkshire. The bird I saw for about 30 seconds today was about the size of a blackbird and very lightly built. Its predominant colour was pale, dusty with perhaps a hint of green. The main marking was a very noticeable black lateral stripe on its wing (i.e. along the body). It was fairly close to a lightly residential area, first sitting on a fence post to a field then flying off into a small wooded area. It flew in three or four swoops.
