Yes Malcolm, it looked bigger to me, could be because of the longer tail.

Your Notes states "Bigger than a H. Sparrow"
Stonechat is 12.5mm long on average and weighs 13-17 grams.
House Sparrow is 15mm long on average and weighs 24-32 grams.
I am curious to know what type of H. Sparrow you know which is smaller than a Stonechat, other than a chick!
