A Juvenile Song Thrush, taken in our garden last June.

Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) Family: (Turdidae)A familiar and popular garden songbird whose numbers are declining seriously, especially on farmland making it a Red List (Endangered) species. Smaller and browner than a mistle thrush with smaller spotting. Its habit of repeating song phrases distinguish it from singing blackbirds. It likes to eat snails which it breaks into by smashing them against a stone with a flick of the head.
They inhabit woods, hedgerows, parks and gardens across the UK - wherever there are bushes and trees and can be seen all year round. They feed on worms, snails and fruit.(description copied from www.rspb.org.uk)
