Looking at the Birds of Europe field guide this one is definitely a Common Blackbird - only Blackbird species in Europe and has the distinctive yellow bill and narrow yellow-eye ring.

Nice photo Augustin -

Thank you very much, Evelyn!

You're right about our (European) blackbirds, with the remark that those yellow beak and eye rings are to be found to the male only; the female blackbird has duller colors and actually she isn't black either:

I like the image taken with the Sony, congratulations!

Happy shooting with your new camera,
