We analysed our experimental recent findings of the dipole response of the odd-mass stable nucleus Tl-205 within the quasi-particle phonon model. Using the phonon basis constructed for the neighbouring Hg-204 and wave function configurations for 205Tl consisting of a mixture of quasiparticle circle times N-phonon configurations (N= 0,1,2), only one group of fragmented dipole excited states has been reproduced at 5.5 MeV in comparison to the experimental distribution which shows a second group at about 5 MeV. The computed dipole transition strengths are mainly of E1 character which could be associated to the pygmy dipole resonance.
