Fieldfare?
Description:

I was looking at the lapwings in the same field, and didn't know what this was. Looking at pictures, I think it is a fieldfare

migration

The majority of ‘our' Fieldfares originate in Scandinavia and begin to arrive from October and numbers build up as the winter progresses. Birds start to return in March and some may stay into May.Stunning bird, a nice spot.

My father eports increased

My father eports increased numbers of fieldfares again in west norfolk, presumably birds getting ready for the journey back across the north sea.
