Always easy to tell apart from the other Sparrow's, the (not so) common (now) and garden House Sparrow. Identified by the grey cap and the way I remember is old houses had grey slate roofs.
Many thanks for all your clicks and comments, very much appreciated.
Steve.

A lovely clear image of one of life's little much underrated treasures! So glad you mentioned the trick for recognising which is which as it has baffled me for years! We have a load of these little characters here this year.
