Was out today and came across this little chappie, the orignal was a bit overexposed and I had camera shake (damn) but I resized, lowered the gamma and then sharpened and think I JUST about got away with it.

Ah, hmm, erm, maybe a young blackbird then, don't think it's a thrush.

Will have to do some research, I should be able to tell, my mum gets loads in her garden and I was there watching them all on Sunday! lol!
