But this bird was a different matter altogether though because, as can be seen from the photographs, it came very close and wasn't bothered by people. When I see birds like this I immediately think of two things: either it's a tame, escaped bird or it's not well. But perhaps being a 1st winter bird it's just not seen people before.
It turns out that the bird was being fed by an old lady in her back yard where it been seen for a least a couple of weeks. We saw it mainly on the wall at the back of 'Frydays' Fish and Chip shop, although it did fly up to a chimney and across the road to a rooftop on a couple of occasions.
And the bonus bird was this House Sparrow which made a nice composition sitting on this maple tree.
