If the bird is pink with two bright white wing bars it sounds like a White-winged Crossbill - does it have obvious white chevron-shaped tips to the tertials and a black tail?
Cone crop in the north may result in one or two birds making their way south, perhaps as part of the Purple Finch movement we are seeing at the moment.
