No idea beautiful bird in the woods in north cornwall.

(UK, cornwall)

I was driving along and the bird was perched on the tree overhanging. I have tried every web page and cannot find it. Sorry no photo but hoping someone can help.


Size: similar to a blackbird maybe a little smaller
Stance: very upright like a thrush
Colour: body was pale beige bold solid colour breast paler than back still beige with vivid yellow flashings along under wing across side of breast.

looking through the webpages it has the colouring and look of a red flanked bluetail but much more upright and larger.

fingers crossed this description is enough for someone to recognise the bird. very striking colouring that took my eye.
