I haven't seen or even heard much from the Blackbirds recently so it was nice to see one in the garden today.
At first I thought he had some white feathers in his plumage but then I realised he was moulting.
He doesn't look too bad from this side...
...but it's a really bad hair day on this side.
It seemed happy enough... scratching around below the feeders looking for food...
...and finding plenty of grubs in the process.
It's been sunny all day and I have just sat with my leg up enjoying the comings and goings in my garden.
I have French doors that open onto my patio so I am just a few feet away from the action...
...these two were having a tiff over the seed.
It's was nice to see the Woodpigeon had a twinkle in his eye.
