Earlier in the week my 8 year old daughter told me about a white Sparrow she had seen in Westonzoyland.

I went and photographed it one evening and assumed it was a very white leucistic bird, BBC Springwatch even shared my pics saying it was ‘probably leucistic’.
However, I went and photographed it again yesterday evening in better light and it’s pink eyes were clearly visible, making it, in fact, an even rarer albino bird! :D
