Agreement

Agreeing on the basis of your description, rather than the picture, which I find hard to see clearly! A flock of such birds should only be Fieldfare, given the colours described.

Description-based agreement

Like Ian, my agreement is based more on the description than the photo.

Robins tend to be very territorial and object when another robin invades their territory. A flock of robins seems very unlikely.
