Song thrush fledgling

Encountered my first Song thrush fledgling of the year while on my bike travelling through Ballygrant on Friday. It was sat astride the white line in the middle of the road, all beak and eyes and spotty breast, no tail and not much in the way of brains either. I wheeled round and returned to shoo it away, getting there just before the oncoming traffic. It flew away quite strongly, crash landing into a wire fence surrounding a garden. I felt quite the hero of course...
