To discover whether you have song thrushes in the area, sit out in your garden just before dusk and listen - as the other birds go quiet a song thrush will sing from a high vantage point http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2N9BN-mYrw
So easy to identify if you remember Robert Browning's poem, Home Thoughts from Abroad
" ... That’s the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over,
Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first fine careless rapture! ..."
