A Thrush in winter rather than a winter Thrush
The Song Thrush, a resident UK bird that brightens up spring and summer days with its superb calls and songs, generally quite difficult to see until it decides to ' stand up and be counted '' and shows itself from the highest of perches. Equally comfortable on the ground where it can be seen often but never far from cover, males may hold their territories throughout the year. Whilst some migration does take place I always feel that the Song Thrush is a very British bird.
