Not quite clear, because so much is missing, especially the tail. I would be
pretty confident it is a juvenile Brush or Fantailed Cuckoo (which are
difficult to distinguish). More likely the former, due to the big
blotchiness of the front pattern. I think the legs are too short and perched
too low to be a juvenile Robin (although the pattern funnily enough, almost
matches as well as for a juvenile Brush Cuckoo).

Members are invited to respond to Alan with an ID of his juvenile bird.

Many thanks
