Crash landing

It is so sad when small birds crash into your plate glass windows. Last week a blue tit had inadvertently entered via an open door and spent time flying from one window to another until eventually it killed itself -despite us opening as many doors and windows as possible. Today this little chap hit our window with such force that feathers flew in all directions.
Happily he recuperated on the window sill (formally forbidden to all cats) for about an hour before fluttering off into the bushes.
His size, beak and markings suggest he is a male cirl bunting, something we don't see to often.
