Thread: Mistle thrush

  1. #1

    Default Mistle thrush

    I enjoyed seeing a mistle thrush while down in Dundee last weekend but I have never seen one here in Caithness. Has anyone else seen one or do they not come this far north?

    There are Mistle Thrushes in Caithness in some woodlands and plantations, but they are not widespread.

    Not seen a Mistle Thrush for many years, but I do remember they are pretty fierce if you go near their nest.

    There's a new bird coming in the garden after googling it's either a song thrush or a mistle thrush but not sure what one, it's about the size of a blackbird, a right bonnie bird it is.

    That'll be a song thrush.
    A mistle thrush is bigger.

    Song thrush has a very distinctive way of repeating musical phrases in its song. Beautiful bird.
