The poor thrush flew full tilt into the closed bedroom window and was killed on impact.  I retrieved it - gingerly - from the patio. 

As I can't dig the garden I had to dispose of it in the rubbish. I can tell you, this felt like sacrilege. But not before recording and marvelling at the beauty of the plumage. Just amazing.

Oh, poor thing. At least it was instant. We've had some fly into the windows on our building at work - stickers have been ordered to break up the reflections. Anyway, yes, gorgeous plumage!
