I thought I didn't have any good pics yesterday when I posted the nut hatch. Silly me, they were still on the camera. There were two on the bush at the same time. This one
And this one
I don't know if they are Mr and Mrs or just mates.
I also took some pics of greenery
And here's Mrs blackbird
MrJoo called me up to the landing window. There was a blue tit in the hole that next door had made for their new vent. I don't know if he was checking it out for a nest or just nicking some nest materials. There was another blue tit in a tree nearby keeping an eye out too.
