Giliell, professional cynic -Ilk- says
Female blackbirdb though she is exceptionally light coloured. I suspect interbreeding with thrushes.
Ah. A Thrush was my second guess.
My atlas says it is a juvenile blackbird. They do not get their proper colours until second year, so this one is probably from last year’s brood.
Juvenile birds are sometimes tricky to identify. A friend of mine works at a museum as a biologist, and he was once brought a bird for taxidermy (it was killed by a window). He was unable to identify the bird properly until an ornitologist told him that it is one year old starling -- those look quite different from adults too.

She may be young but she’s already mastered sitting level. That still fascinates me.
