I agree Simon. The other photo shows the pale edges to the wing feathers which distinguish it from the more uniform wings of Song Thrush.

Not sure whose opinions are divided, Jon - but my opinion is that this is definitely a Mistle Thrush. It just has that jizz of a more robust and longer body than Song Thrush. But the specific characteristics of the dark patch on the side (shows well here),denser spotting than Song Thrush, which is also extended lower down on the breast, and with the spots being rounded rather than 'arrow' shaped, all confirm ( for me) that this is a Mistle Thrush.
