Hi Alan

Interesting photo! It is a young cuckoo, I believe a Brush Cuckoo, what can
be seen of the markings match that species well. They are a regular
spring/summer migrant at Mulligans.

Young robins can have similar markings but are differently shaped. Hooded
Robins used to breed at Mulligans but sadly that is no longer the case.

Many thanks
