An abundance of cherries
We have a cheeky little blackbird that visits our garden and has been teasing me for the last couple of days. I've been trying my utmost to get a photo of her helping herself to the fallen cherries from our tree.
Most years I leave the cherries for the birds to enjoy and of course I don't mind but this blackbird is being a minx. She plays around with a cherry tossing it about and holding it in her beak and then as soon as I take a photo the cherry is no more. As the cherry tree is part of our mole garden I think the blackbird is joining in the fun.
Here she is posing in front of the sign although there are no more "woopsies in the grass"
She's moved along now but no cherry
Now she's turned her back on me
So she knows what I'm up to and flies off to sit on the neighbour's fence
I would normally have more patience to photograph her in the act but a couple of days ago I had what they call a PICC line inserted into my upper right arm and the district nurses are visiting my home to flush it out so I owe it to them and myself to be sensible. So little blackbird help yourself to cherries and play as much as you like, I'll leave you be :)
