Forgot to mention this image is taken during the day and the IR LED's are off.

I believe this is quite normal for night vision cameras to have red tint due to the IR filter being removed. The red tint seems to be more obvious in low light conditions as well.

Raspi.tv did a comparison of the two official raspberry pi cameras, the normal and noir. - https://raspi.tv/2013/pinoir-whats-it-f ... n-daylight

As you can see, the red tint is apparent on the noir camera as well.
