RARE albino sparrows have found a home at a house in Lympsham.

The birds were spotted a month ago and have decided to stay in the garden of resident Wendy Trumper in Bridgwater Road.

Wendy, aged 65, was told to come to the window after her husband thought they had a budgie.

She said: “When I came down I saw that the bird was pearl white.

“I went online to do some research and found out it is an albino sparrow.”

The couple feed the sparrow every day and it now has two babies.

A RSPB spokesman confirmed that albino sparrows are reasonably rare.
