Seen for the first time, the first of the new arrivals, in the shape of a young Blackbird. It was following it's dad about the garden, learning it's way around and stopping at intervals to receive a tasty snack.
Today I observed Mr Blackbird busy collecting morsels of food and flying onto the rear fence then into the Holly bush, obviously feeding the youngster or youngsters who were being kept hidden. He did this 3 times as I watched, then he flew out of my line of vision to the gardens higher up the street.
Edit @ 19.05
We saw Mr Blackbird many times throughout the day, searching for and collecting food non stop.
