Unusual sight ..... a blackbird :eek: !!!
She was just hopping around the lawn, prospecting for breakfast. Good to see.

I have seen a Blackbird once in the last three weeks though I suspect he is coming more often as the sultanas are disappearing and nothing else bothers with them since the Sturks departed.

I went to the bird table this morning with some scraps and came face to beak with a male blackbird. We exchanged glances and I got the impression I was expected to depart and leave him in peace. However the goodies had to be delivered and he reluctantly gave ground. :)
I did notice that his head was nearly bald due to a lice infection. :(

Omg :( , I hope he recovers Jacksparrow, I read that it can be dangerous for them? That if the weather gets cold the bird can't retain heat properly due to the lack of feathers :unsure:

Not seen any blackbirds here yet, since they were feeding young. Usually pick them up early with the hedgehog camera.
