This bird crashed into a house window in Chorlton, Manchester. Not in Wychwood Park as far as I know, butthat's the location the map came up with! Anyone have any idea what it maybe? Obviously not a native species, could it be an exotic escapee or a hybrid of some nature?

This species is common in China but is also often kept in captivity in this country. I don't suppose it flew very far so there must be someone near you that keeps them in their garden.

Incidentally, you can always amend the title that the map allocates to a location.
