Bird id help - is this a Ring Ouzel? London, England (1 Viewer)


New member
Spotted late October in central London. It didn’t look like a thrush or a blackbird. Could it be a Ring Ouzel or something else? Any help appreciated.

It is a Mistle Thrush which is a big thrush and has more pattern on the wings. Also note the white tips to some of the tail feathers that wouldn't be shown by a normal Song Thrush, Blackbird or Ring Ouzel.
