Blackbirds in the Garden

I was playing in the garden last week with my dog and all day I heard a male Blackbird chirping… he was obviously wanting us to go away! Once we had finished I headed in and a little while later I looked outside.

Mr Blackbird was feeding a little one. I felt pretty bad afterwards for making him wait! Excitedly I grabbed the camera and got a few shots. Typically, the light was harsh and thy decided to go into a shadowed area.

A little while later a second joined which was lovely and I watched as they followed him around the garden.

Hey, Dad, my turn next!

Either in the evening, or the day after I got the shot I was aiming for, in slightly better light.

On Sunday 17th, there only seems to be the one following him around. But the light was nice even if Sparrows decided to photobomb!

I think they’re great to watch and I will add more photos as the days go on. It seems to have grown quite a bit even over a few days!
