Sitting in the garden today - joy of joy sun at last! - I heard a blackbird making that noise that says "I don't like you being there" in the hedge just behind where I was sitting. I looked up and there "he" was checking me out, we eyed each other for a while and then he hopped further along onto the top of a loganberry bush growing beside me. He plucked off a big loganberry and I watched fascinated while he took three attempts to swallow it.
When I told Geoffrey about this he said "oh that's the blackbird that comes down to give out to me everytime I go into the garden"!
