Regular readers will know that I have a few friendly blackbirds; and therefore I am able to get quite close to them, and can get some interesting photos of them.
This guy really likes sunbathing and preening on the arbour seat roof!
Here he is starting to preen. He knows I’m nearby, but he’s relaxed and just going about his work 🙂
He preened for a while as I watched, contorting his neck to get into position
Then he had an itch!
You can never see it live as it’s so fast, but check out how he’s tucked his wing under his leg!
I’ve made a tag if you’re interesting in past blackbird antics.
