    1. Oh, yes, I remember it well. I guess that blackbirds are amongst the first songbirds that open their beaks each morning. For tired out pop stars who’ve only retired to bed in the early hours, I think that it might seem like the middle of the night to hear all that cheeping welcoming in the day’s first chink of light!

  1. You’ve got your own congregation of black birds 🙂 It’s a great picture, we take the dog out before dawn but there’s always a blackbird or two about – I’ve never seen a group like this though!

    1. There’s a whole flock of blackbirds that congregate on the rooftops across the road from me. They have a wonderful view from there that overlooks a recreation ground and woods beyond, so they can keep a good look out for cats and other types of marauders. In the Spring and Summer, they pair off and take up ownership of various chimneys. Often they have early morning meetings with their neighbours. I can watch them whilst having my early morning cup of tea in bed, as my bedroom looks down over the rooftops. They’re very plucky birds and often gang up against seagulls to drive them away. A hen blackbird nesting in a tree in my back garden came under attack by a magpie who was after the newly-hatched chicks. Mrs Blackbird won the argument, to the disgruntlement of the magpie, who sat complaining in another tree for ages afterwards. Birds are so fascinating.

    1. Thank you Sherri. I had to get my camera out very quickly to capture that enchanting sight first thing in the morning! Seeing such beautiful things are such a good start to the day … and we all need good starts to our days, don’t we? xxxx
