I think the, barely discernable, stripe in the tail can be ignored, as can
be the very dark upperwings.  Overall, the rump is just a little paler in
colour than the tail.  The contrast on a Sparpie would be much greater.  I
also feel the bird is too heavily built to be a Sharpie.  The "trailing"
toes, I think, are due to the bird dangling its legs a little and the angle
of the photograph.

Do we have any other votes.  We don't want to confuse Stuart.  How about a
show of hands or has Stuart received enough information privately to make
an informed decision?
