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.
Just had an update from another source and it has been identified as a Rock Pippet....thanks everyone!
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 ?
