Re: Throstle

Looks like it was very trusting, even with a decent focal length. No idea which was which.

BTW, ‘throstle’ is a new word for me!

Looks like a very young song thrush but throstle seems close to mistle too.

Throstle is an old English word for the song thrush, which it is!

A nice set. It looks like the WB was wrong for the third.

Re: Throstle

"Thostle", new to me too.
Big brother to little brother - "Tell mum and I throstle you"

Fab pictures, PP I aspire to.
Ed: more to do with the lens no doubt.

Re: Throstle

Lovely shots and nope I can't really tell either but if I was to have a guess then I'd go for the #1, #3, and #4 as shot with the MC-14 ?
Interested to know the answer though.

I'm thinking baby robin.

BTW: Drossel is German for Thrush/Throstle.

Re: Throstle

Lovely shots of this perky and confident looking little Song Thrush Andrew. It's good to know that shiny new ones are still being produced in some parts of the country, as they are a thing of the past where I live. It seems that the local dendrophobes are petrified by anything green which is more than a metre tall.

Do you know my neighbour? He spent 20+ minutes mowing his postage stamp sized lawn and will probably be raking the gravel in straight lines shortly too. Meanwhile we’ve had half a dozen blackbirds fledge along with blue tits, robin, wrens and seemingly a whole squadron of sparrows. We get the occasional thrush and often hear one singing locally but sadly they seem to have suffered quite a decline locally.

Not so I’m afraid although I do know why you’d say that as young robins do tend to get a speckled breast before their proper feathers develop.
