Unusual Sparrow

This odd looking Sparrow was spotted among the flock in the Aberystwyth Harbour (behind South Marine Terrace) a couple of days ago. I sent the photos to the BTO who suggested in may be a hybrid Spanish/House Sparrow but I’d be interested to know if you or anyone else has any more insight.

I've sent Claire a reply saying why I think it's a male House Sparrow, but we would welcome any further contributions.
