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 ?
