We managed to snap this first time seen by us in our back garden around 3pm this afternoon. 

Local blackbirds didn't seem bothered by its presence.

This is a juvenile female Blackbird, Mg.  You are familiar with the brown female Blackbird with the yellowish beak but the juveniles have a gingery brown body and brownish beak.

In which case it's the largest juvenile blackbird ever given it dwarfed adult blackbirds in the garden at the same time. 

Look at the fence slats. They're 4 inches or more wide.

Sorry, Mg but you have me stumped.  It has all the features of a juvenile blackbird, which are around ten inches in length.  I cannot think what else it can be but I am no expert.  I will be interested in the outcome.

Hi Mg,

No mention was made in your original post of the relative size of the bird or the size of the fence panels, so your comments seem a trifle unfair when directed at someone who is just trying to help you.

Grateful if you could keep that in mind

Many thanks

I'm sorry. 

I thought the reference to Blackbirds not being bothered by its presence covered. 

I accept I could have been clearer.
