Leucistic Robin - Bridford

A few days ago neighbours reported a "white" Robin on their bird feeder, and yesterday whilst bird ringing in the garden, Kevin Johns and I caught the bird.  Colouring was generally warm, unlike the Chivenor bird in November, which appeared grey in the photos.  It seemed fit and healthy, weighing in at 17.4 gm, and was in its 1st year - ("growth" bars evident in tail and primaries and just possible to detect moult limits in the greater coverts).
