Seen on golf course in Winchester. Very small(smaller than a sparrow) Green in colour with very distinctive stripe on head, This was yellow with red down the centre.


Possibly juvenile. Allowed us to get up close before taking flight. Flew towards one person on tried to perch on front of shirt. Did not get a grip, flew towards another person and briefly settled on his shoulder before flying of into trees.

Seen Thursday p.m. March 2nd

Can anyone identify?
