From Adrian Binns:
"Going through recently taken photos I was surprised to see such a distinctive under wing pattern on what is a relatively common bird - a species we all know and see in the appropriate habitat. I had never noticed this pattern before. It is a neat pattern and in this case likely produced because all the primary and flight feathers are bunched together making the wing appear narrow. The bird was a good distance away and I have had to blow up the image to show just the last half of the under wing (any more of the image would have given away the bird). I apologize for the poor quality of this image. Any guesses?"
