Since my report the other day has elicited some interest, I should amplify
it a little. There is no chance of it having been a female blackbird; we
have had resident blackbirds here for years. When I saw the bird in question
it immediately reminded me of the thrushes one sees in the Melbourne Botanic
Garden which I assume are Song Thrushes. However, it was distinctly larger
than both a blackbird and, judging from my guide, a Song Thrush. While the
background colour of the breast was pale, I was not able to discern the
shape of the markings.
Thanks to those who responded.
