Bird identification - can anyone help please?

  • We were on the Shotley Peninsula this morning, and saw a bird sitting on a bush by the Marshes. It was slim, just a little bigger than a sparrow, with a blush of pink on the breast, and cream on the neck at the front. Brown wings with white and black at the tips. Double pointed tail. Short beak. Sorry if my description is rather amateurish!! Any ideas? Some sort of warbler, I thought.
  • Hi Karen

    Was it anything like this male Linnet?

  • Hi Alan

    yes, exactly! Thank you so much for the quick and accurate response. Curiosity satisfied...

  • Your description was spot on Karen...well done.
