[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Mistle Thrush has been spending some time looking for food and eventually found some in my cotoneaster bush with a ample supply of red berry's.

The Thrush is often found in gardens and easily identified by it spotted breast can be confused with the Mistle Thrush which has larger spots. Feed on berry's, snails and other insects found in the garden.

Image cropped 30% applied auto contrast (thanks Perter Z) due to being taken through double glazing. Slight sharpening to compensate for loss on uploading to TN.

Thanks for viewing.

Hello William,
What a fine winter-picture showing the beautful Mistle Trush. You show very well its special spotted plumage which helps to identify this species. Not an easy light, you did well.
Thanks too for your help on my last picture. I'm a little bit late,but I was absent from home.
Have a nice Sunday
