Garden Wildlife Part 17 Blackbirds

For a while I’ve been using a Birdsy camera to film the wildlife and in particular the birds in my garden.

Last weekend I moved it around again, this time focusing it on the birdbath in the back garden.

It has been picking up some nice footage of a blackbird family. I’ve only seen the male blackbird with the young.

I’ve just been reading up about blackbirds on the RSPB website and fledged young are often left in the care of the male, while the female prepares for the next nesting attempt, so our female is hopefully getting ready for brood number 2.
