It's deffinatly a female, because the male versions are indeed black, and the females are brown.... But "merula" sounds a lot like "Merel"so maybe it is a blackbird (I really don't know)

Nice shot! It's a Blackbird, allright, I know them well ;-) The behaviour sounds typical as well, coming up close and then study with interest what you're doing.

He was 20 feet away from me, and I good walk around, but when I came to close, he hupped away and turned around again....

Thanks for the replies!
