Is it a common Nightingale or Thrush Nightingale?

If I’ve interpreted the wing formula correctly, the 1st primary appears “shorter” than the primary coverts, that should suggest Thrush Nightingale?

Cheers

I posted to that effect earlier Ken then deleted it - I wasn’t sure if that was down to moult (p1/10) still growing and/or whether the luscinia type plumage was down to wear? I could only see 7 pp tips so wondered if the pp was slightly short? (My experience of Thrush is primarily Spring and late Autumn migration)

Two for Thrush...one for Common ....any other ideas?

You mean any other votes, not ideas Ody? This could become like one of those TV programmes when the public register their preference for competitor No. 1 or No. 2!;)
For me it's a Common, but if five more people say Thrush and only two more say Common what will you do?:eek!:
