Turdus philomelos (Song Thrush)

Spotted by Volunteer Stephanie. First logged 14/05/20
Earliest Submitted record by Volunteer Annabel (Before 2020 project began)

Song Thrush Information can be found here on the RSPB website.

A familiar and popular garden songbird whose numbers have declined markedly on farmland and in towns and cities. 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.
