This shot is probably about the worst combination of busy background that's not too far away to show up the nervous Bokeh. So in that case I'd say you've just been unlucky and ought to resort to extra blur in Photoshop.
The Song Thrush is a beauty btw.
Thanks Phill. I normally don't use Photoshop, and I don't think we can blur things in Lightroom. So that is something learnt, thanks.

But probably the real lesson is what to do in the field to better the photo. To my eye, the little fella was just perfect...…….hey ho....
