Unidentified bird

This little bird - around the size of a starling - paid me a visit this afternoon. It was vigorously digging for worms with that very powerful beak. I thought initially it was a juvenile starling (there are quite a few hereabouts) but looking at others' photos the head and beak look wrong. It was a brown/buff colour with darker wings.

There are a lot about at the moment, it's been a good year for them, in my area anyway.
