Trying to work out if this is a Song or Mistle Thrush, they both look very similar. I had one that used to come for the mealworms I put out that had a curled over foot.

Difficult one  but a nice capture whatever.  From what I can see in my I Spy book of birds (RSPB Handbook), it might be a Thistle Thrush but only because it is described as having a brown spots and a cream underbelly whereas the Song Thrush supposedly has a dark spotted underbelly .  I  haven't seen any sort of Thrush for about four years.  Used to be a few visitors to the garden at one time.  The Song Thrushes are great mimics.  We had one that could cause all sorts of confusion by making a noise like a Trimphone.
