Re: Fieldfare ?

Sorry for the picture-quality, I know that it is not great.

Anyway, thank you for your hindsight. I guess we will never be sure of the exact species, but from memory it was thrush-sized.

Re: Fieldfare ?

It was wee while ago, and the light was not very good, so I did not saw it better than what is on the picture.

I am just hoping someone with more experience can confirm the identification,

Thanks,

Possibility of a steep muddy shortcurt at Duddingston, next to the white house adjacent to the water (there is a muddy path on the right leading to the shore of the loch, nice bird spotting area too), to rejoin the main road around Arthur's Seat.
