Italian Sparrow

Italian Sparrow, Melbourn, 24th January 2019 © Steve Cooper

'After not being seen since June 2018 he was back on the feeders today here in Melbourn. Sorry about quality taken through the window !(Top Photo)
Also photo attached of Italian type Sparrow from Dec 2017 (Melbourn) for comparison with today's sighting as he has gone through moult but this hasn't changed his appearance as far as i can see. A DNA test on a similar bird in Devon has proved to be inconclusive as to it's parentage. (Botton Photo). SC
