An unusual blackbird with white markings has been spotted in Ledbury.

The bird, which has white markings on its head, wings and tail, was seen in the woods by reader Amber Astron-Christo.

The markings are caused by a condition called leucism, which affects the amount of melanin present in the bird’s body.

Leucism is among the biggest reasons for birds having unusual plumage and seems to particularly affect blackbirds.
