Personally I'd put my money on a Hermit Thrush. The black bill tip isn't a problem. Varied Thrush is a bit nearer in shape to American Robin - at least it's less dinky and rotund than your bird looks.

Yes, it's a female Blackbird. They're very variable. I've one visiting my garden this winter that's almost as dark above as a male.

Not so much variety yesterday as in many recent days. A male Bullfinch for the second day in a row (nice!), two Blackcaps, a flock of 30 Greenfinch + Goldfinch and 6 Chaffinch. 9 Blackbirds.

Four Blackcaps today. First thing this morning there were three males side by side on the fallen sunflower hearts. Amazing. For a moment I thought my binoculars needed colimating. Then later on the...

The bird is so scruffy overall that I wouldn't like to make a call based on the bib. How would it look if the bird were neat and pristine, I wonder? That said photo #1 does show that the greater...

Hi Steven. Actually, the list of birds I've had actually in the garden is pretty unimpressive. Only 36 species in c.10 years - and even that includes birds like hirundines passing through below roof...

Thanks, Tom. That's an interesting point you raise about Firecrest's range. We do expect to get a small number of wintering birds down here in Devon (though not in my garden!) but they do seem mainly...

Reminds me of a morning last year when I saw a young Peregrine have a go at a Herring Gull. The family it belonged to put a fair bit of effort into warding off the local gulls too.

I've had a Firecrest visiting my back garden on and off for the last month and also up to two Goldcrests, which are fairly uncommon visitors too. Early this morning I was pleased to see a Goldcrest...

Indeed. All three of them do when they can get the chance, though the territorial one doesn't let them very often, so the other two can usually only make quick raids from the nearby bushes. The bird...
