On behalf of Andy who sent in an email:-

Black body, brown head with beige ring around neck similar to ring ouzel but ring goes all way round neck not just breast.

Can anyone identify?

Hi Andy

Can I ask please in what country you saw this bird? For someone who knows what a "Ring Ousel" is I'm guessing it's not from here in the UK (or did Ring Ousel come up in a Google search?) 

If it is in the UK then I would say it's a Blackbird with feather pigmentation issues. The bird next to it in the second picture looks like a common Blackbird which would corroborate the theory.
