On behalf of John who sent in an email:-

General size and shape like a blackbird, perhaps slightly larger. Colour brown. Pure white cheeks and throat. Faint dark eye bar. Bill small and pointed, possibly yellow. Observed taking mealworms from garden feeder.

I think I have found the answer to my question. What I saw was probably a leucistic blackbird. Apparently these are not uncommon. They vary widely in the amount of white as a search for 'leucistic blackbird' on Google images will show.
