It's just great to see a juv. blackbird clearing meal-worms out of the flower pots, shortly after I have re-stocked them. This is the first juv. bird I have noted in the garden this year.
I was as pleased, when I then heard a goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) in full voice, and spotted the songster on a neighbour's TV aerial. Maybe it will take the time to investigate the bird table? I have still not seen this bird in the garden, although flyovers are infrequently recorded.
