notes from a small island

Solo

I have been trying for ages t get a picture of this guy - he sings the lead solo in the dawn chorus in my garden -

I finally caught him through a window with the zoom.

And then also spotted the sort of bird that, if you are superstitious, you don't want to see solo -

Just in case you don't recognise them they are a male blackbird and a magpie.

Comments

One for sorrow... Thankfully there is always more than one magpie.
Blackbirds are such handsome birds.
Usually we do see the pair of magpies - but on this occasion number 2 was off doing his or her own thing. Probably picking moss off a neighbour's roof as they often do it on ours.

I think this is a young blackbird who has taken over the territory - he doesn't seem as belligerent as the one who spent all last summer in the garden.
