Does anyone know what bird this is please? Is it a rare species?
Looks to be a Wryneck, which is a migratory visitor to the UK
I concur, Eurasian wryneck, Jynx torquilla, though the bill looks a bit long.
(It is not rufous-necked wryneck, Jynx ruficollis, the other species, which is from the African savannahs.)
