nice one harry,he looks like i feel.
He'll get used to it,very nice photo.
Lovely photo harry...it does you good to see all the youngsters in the garden starting their new life.
It's a babby sheppy.
I thought that a "Sheppy" was a Starling, am I wrong???
I reckon that's a young Blackbird. The shape of the beak gives the game away. Starling has a much more pointed beak.

No. you are 100% correct - a "sheppy" is slang for a starling.
Thanks for the comments all.I'm a bit late I just got back from Mykonos. It is a Blackbird chick, I also have photos of mum feeding it.
