It is a rare occurrence for me to see a thrush in the garden so I was delighted when I spotted what I assumed was a Song Thrush sunning itself in the tall leylandii yesterday. It was well fluffed out as the temperature was about -3C.
The soundtrack on the video clip has squabbling Starlings at the start and the tutting of Blackbirds right through. About half a dozen of the Blackbirds have caught on to the fact that I scatter seed as the daylight fades each evening. They hang around on the branches of nearby trees and come down for a last minute snack before finding somewhere to roost for the night.
