A female ginger blackbird has been spotted in a garden in Barford, near Norwich.

Mandy Periam, from Golden Pightle, said: 'The blackbird has been nesting in our garden about a week. We first spotted something unusual about the male blackbird, which has a white rim around its eye. The male has a bit of ginger in him, but the female is all ginger. We will have to wait and see what colour their babies are.'
