Quick Question = Quick Answer x 2

Jill, quick question. A friend took a photo of a bird while in the UK. It was about the size of a robin with a red breast but it appeared to have a blue head and back. Any ideas what it is?

The original quick question.  All I could think of was a male Chaffinch.  So the pic I put up was from the RSPB website.

Carol from West Lothian here. The blue on the crown, neck and shoulders should be grey and the blue on the beak is unusual.
Hey ho, only trying to help.
Anyone else want to chip in?
Chris Elliot can you show your friend........

I too think it was a very dapper male chaffinch.
