  1. Such a beautiful bird, such a beautiful song. My emotions are still a little raw after seeing the images of the carnage wreaked by Spanish gunners on these glorious songbirds.

  5. Hi Bob,
    Super set of images of the delightful Song Thrush with I see the compulsory muddy beak.
    I agree totally with David, it's such a shame in fact a disgrace.
    All the best, John

  10. We have one of these. I will never get a picture as they are way too timid. I see them from afar with binoculars as they thrash the leaves for bugs.

  11. Beautiful and they do as I'm told have a beautiful whistle. I once sang a song when I was having my voice trained about a thrush with music to match like the thrush.

  21. Just catching up, Bob, after a week away with a visit to Scotland.

    The Song Thrush is a beautiful bird. It is such a shame that they are in serious decline. I rarely see one locally. Best wishes - - - Richard
