Friday Islay Picture #168 - Song Thrush

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

Phew, finally weekend after a rather long and exhausting week. Oh, and welcome to October. Earlier today I came across some very nice Islay birdwatching videos from the lowtonbirder, which I briefly thought about posting this evening. But then many of you will have come to expect the Friday Islay picture, so they will have to wait until tomorrow. I'll stick to the bird theme to warm you up for the videos:

Picture of a Song Thrush with a worm in its beak

I believe this is a Song thrush, if I'm wrong please let me know in the comments so that I can correct it. Not really a rare bird I understand, but I thought it looked quite nice as it was gathering its breakfast. Not sure what it was having that morning, I think some kind of worm or caterpillar. I took this picture (and a few more) of it on a sunny June morning this year, at Kilchoman House Cottages.

As usual I will post a larger version of the picture on the Islay Pictures photoblog on Saturday morning. Now it's time for a wee dram of the Laphroaig Triple Wood, probably soon followed by some much needed sleep. Good night, back tomorrow with the birdwatching videos if all goes to plan.
