Odd-plumaged Blue Tit

A Blue Tit with a nice blue chest! Not the best photo but I'll attempt to get a better one if it sticks around.

Seen today in the garden - not seen before today and since I watch the garden constantly clearly a newbie driven in during this cold snap (other new birds arrived in the garden today too).

My contribution to the BTO's Abnormal Plumage Survey.

Not the first plumage oddity we've had here. Each year we get schizochroic Collared Doves like the one here.
