Hello, can any one help me ID this bird from this rather poor photo that we took last week. It had a distinctive clear cut grey/blue head and chestnut wings. Thanks

The bird's brown mantle and nape rule out RWP, as does the lack of a contrasting white belly. As well as a dark grey nape, I'd expect Blyth's PF to have a more angular head shape with a slight crest and longer wings.
