Default Newbie Ident. Question

Hi there...
I saw this bird on the feeding station the other say ...the size of a dove/small pigeon. ( I am pretty good at spotting doves and pigeons and this wasn't like any I have seen before !) Could it be a juvenile cuckoo?
Sorry..not a great photo, and it was silhouetted & wet!
Looking forward to getting some advice!
Many thanks
Stuart
PS I am in the UK

Yes thats a collard dove without a doubt, the colour is to do with the way the light is catching it.
