Which bird laid these eggs

A friend found this nest in her garden while tidying up. Can anyone tell which bird laid them. She’s been told it’s either a Song Thrush or a Blackbird. Thanks for your help.


  • Looks like blackbird.

    Song Thrush. A Blackbird's are pale blue with many fine brownish speckles. Also the nest is lined with mud, a blackbird's isn't.

    I agree with Fishy65.

    Look after it as best you can because they’re becoming quite rare in some parts of the country.

    A good reason not to use slug pellets and nematodes ;)
    Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people
