Perhaps neither...

Try looking up Dunnock, Prunella modularis, (search for photos online). Many individuals are a more uniform grey colour underneath but it's not unusual for them to be heavily streaked, especially along the flanks.

Auto focus.

It looks like your camera's autofocus got the brambles fine but missed the bird.
I agree with Roy, it looks very dunnocky, allowing for the streaking.

Thanks, Never occured to me

Thanks, Never occured to me that it was a Dunnock, Yes trouble with the auto focus but no time to manually take it
