a song thrush

Song Thrush Turdus philomelos

It's smaller and browner than a mistle thrush with smaller spotting. Its habit of repeating song phrases distinguish it from singing blackbirds. It likes to eat snails which it breaks into by smashing them against a stone with a flick of the head. Image: Neil Rolph (Flickr).
