Although it does not look immediately look like one in the photo, Shiela this may be a Fieldfare.  It is hard to judge the bird's size in the photo but they are the size of a Blackbird.  They have a blue/grey head and brown back. Fieldfare have a yellowish bill and an eye with a yellow ring, similar to the one in the photo.  Their chest is similar to that of a Thrush but it cannot be seen in the photo. I assume this photo was taken recently and Fieldfare are here in numbers during winter feeding on berries.
