October Thrush, southern England

I photographed this thrush sp on a bright morning of moderate passage in mid-october.

Some have suggested it is a Fieldfare, but the absence of white on belly or vent, and the lack of contrast between underwing coverts and remiges doesn't fit for me.

I'm seeing Fieldfare + photo artefact. Id trust the shape most. Plus the underwing/tail combo
