Down Came a Blackbird

Thursday, 20th December 2001, West Yorkshire

blackbird drinking A MALE BLACKBIRD drinks at the edge of a largely ice-covered pond - he's not our resident bird, that's 'White-tail' who flies down from the bird table, edges him away and takes a drink himself.

There are a number of wintering blackbirds around today. At one stage there are four of them close together in next door's page
