WHAT TYPE OF BIRD IS THIS?

Definitely not a Chaffinch.  It moves its wings
alternatively. 

It has two flanks of white on both sides of its body.   Unless Chaffinches breed with Dunnocks.  

But its always in the garden and the Robin chases it off. We also have two robins now and they do not fight

I’ve tweeted it and will take a look at some bird books and ask a few friends.

A BIRD VERY MUCH LIKE A DUNNOCK BUT WITH WHITE FEATHERS ON BOTH WINGS. WHAT BIRD IS IT?

I’ve had this question and all I can think of is a chaffinch.  The chaffinches that come to my feeders have white on their wings.  But can  anyone help with more advice?
