This white sparrow was spotted in a garden at Lepton.
And although they are rare it turns out two others had been in the same garden last year.
The photo was taken by Jez Simpson who lives just off Knotty Lane in the village.
His neighbour, John Dutton, said: “There were two white sparrows in the garden last year but they then just disappeared. We wondered if they had fallen victim to sparrowhawks. White sparrows are rare and unusual.”
Chris Collett from the RSPB in Northern England, said: “Albinism is a genetic condition and has been found in many British bird species, including sparrows. However, albino birds are quite rare and don’t tend to survive for long as they also often also have poor eyesight and hearing and are easily spotted by predators.”
