Song Thrush taking a bath- another reason for having even a small area of shallow water in the garden! Like many people, we rarely get Song Thrushes now so this is a great treat. We are more likely to get the Mistle Thrush. As well as being smaller than the Mistle Thrush, (and a little smaller than a Blackbird), the Song Thrush has more regular, upward-pointing arrow-shaped lines of spots, a browner back and an orange underwing. The BTO do a great little video on the differences in appearance and song. Conditions: Light cloud and drizzle after very heavy rain yesterday. Temperature: Max 7- Min 3c.
