    It is hard to tell from that photo and it is difficult to assess its size. Given your location and the colour and pattern of its feathers I would guess it is Passer domesticus (House Sparrow).

    Looks like a long tailed tit.

    Wow, that is a tough one.  My first impression is a pen tailed whydah.  A young male might have a tail that short.  Otherwise, something like a scissor tail flycatcher seems possible.  The picture is hiding some of the most important parts used in identification.  The two birds I listed can be found in Southern California but the flycatcher would be rare.  

    I see you said England so maybe this one, a Long-tailed tit

    We have our own kind of *** here in So Cal.  They are Bushtits actually and much plainer than yours.
