    Got a picture of a bird that is coming back to our garden over the bad weather but not sure what it is.. size of a starling, the markings down its back and over its head show as stripes....

    That picture clinches it I think... thanks.
    Never seen one before so really nice, its just a shame it has a damaged leg and was struggling to feed.

    Thanks everyone....

    Its a female Blackbird.

    sparrow definitely a sparrow

    Looks like a pipit, most likely a meadow pipit but leg colour isn't clear enough. Does that help?

    That my friend is what is known as a "wee brown bird", an avian creature with feathers.

    Hope it helps

    I jest, Merry Christmas and all that.

    So did you shoot it ?
