The bird was very light in colour....
and the speckled breast was most distinctive, I think it might be a Song Thrush!
I have since been reliably informed that it is not a Song Thrush, but a Mistle Thrush.
Female Black Redstart.
Male Black Redstart
I have had many sightings of The Black Redstart.
I took this photograph through the studio window and was amazed to see the bird had eyelashes. After looking up if birds really do have eyelashes, I found out they are tiny feathers, but isn't it a sweet look!
The Sparrow Hawk, perched on a tree on our drive way. I shot into the sun, through our lounge window to get this poor image. It was a huge surprise for me to see it again, as I had seen it for the first time only the day before.
I have been reliably informed that the bird in the first two images is a Mistle Thrush. Many thanks to Frank, from Wild Bird Watching with Fab.
