Redwing or fieldfare?

Saw a bird in a tree outside HUMS cafe just before Christmas. About the size of a blackbird but in shades of brown. Bright red patch on the body, just below the wing if I remember rightly. Redwing or fieldfare?

  1. The bright red suggests a redwing. Fieldfares are much more thrush like in colour.
