Garden Mega!

This strongly marked Blackbird has been hanging around in the garden today. Must admit when I first clocked it with the naked eye, I did have to run for my bins! Almost Sibe Thrush like with that supercilium and it even looked blue in some lights! It was quite skittish often being hassled by the other blackbirds, hence the best photos I could get were through the window! Great looking bird......

Is that a Sibe Thrush in the garden!? Looks Sibe Thrush in colour here. Shame it lacked the barred undertail from this view!


  1. Shame it wasn't really a rare thrush, you could have supressed it !


  2. Now, now Mr Woodburn! Anyone would think you needed Dusky Thrush (like me!)
