This guy is a hero!

I’m pretty sure that this rather battered looking male Blackbird in my garden is the same one who reared a brood of youngsters single-handedly, after his mate was squashed on the road, earlier this Spring. Now he’s at it again, feeding a brood of youngsters in our clematis – and there’s no sign of a female again either! He spends every waking moment rummaging around the shrubbery, looking for insects and grubs for his hungry mob. I keep him going by making sure there’s always plenty of grub on the bird table. He may not be the prettiest bird around but boy he’s the most industrious!
