Despite tucking him away 'safely' behind some vegetation, he preferred to be out in the open.
This Blackbird became the latest edition to my ever growing dazzling list from the hills in Mid Wales:
Jack Snipe, Common Snipe, Great Snipe, Woodcock, Golden Plover, Lapwing, Ruff, Curlew, Purple Sandpiper, Long-eared Owl, Short-eared owl, Barn Owl, Tawny Owl, Buzzard, Kestrel, Grey Heron, Mallard, Teal, Stock Dove, Grey Partridge, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Wheatear, Starling, Blackbird, Fieldfare, Redwing, Song Thrush and Reed Bunting. A few that have unfortunately got away are: Snow Bunting, Wigeon and Pintail.
Just goes to show that there's plenty out there, it's just a matter of finding it!
