Male blackbird was in my hawthorn this morning, so thought I would watch with my bins. It was looking at the dish of mealworms put out for the smaller birds. But it decided instead to fly down on the berberis. Has nice purple berries, and in flower. As I watched it scoffed down ten berries one after another, and it only flew off because a car as coming along the road. That's a lot of berries for one sitting. Came back again or another male, no yellow beak, but got disturbed.
