Blackie snacking on holly berries.

Finally the blackbirds are back in their cluster! Good to see them back snacking on the berries around the garden at last.

Yes, a fabulous pic Kate! You caught her just right..:))
I have a male blackbird that comes right up to my kitchen door, who's very territorial, he won't even allow a female one anywhere near...

Thanks Paul! I don’t always have the patience!
Thank you, Shirley! Much appreciated :-)
Thank you, Janey, she did arrive while I was waiting, good timing for once! I’m envious of your little visitor. I do love to see the males with their yellow beaks.
The only time I find them getting closer to me or the house is when they are feeding young!!!

Aw thanks Sheila! I’ve spotted several out there today with some tits and a little robin. However, it’s freezing out there! I’ll just admire them from inside in the warmth and hope it gets a bit milder soon...then, back out clicking the camera ☺️

Great minds, Rose! Happy New Year to you and your family too! Best wishes for the coming months x

Aw thanks Lesley, I’m just pleased they all now seem to remember where I live! I hope things change and you see some more birds in your garden soon. ;-)

Well caught photo Kate. Sometimes you can focus in on the bird and by the time you press the button to take the photo they're gone......
