Close look

If you look closely, the bill is not that of a bunting and the lack of moustaches rules out the Reed Bunting.

At first glance at the thumbnail and you could think it is a Reed Bunting but click to enlarge or view the original and it's clearly different.

Bill difference

Thank you for pointing that out, it's really helpful! The Stonechat is not a species that I'm familiar with, but didn't think it looked quite right for a Reed bunting.
