As of this week we reached double figures for the number of individual blackbirds re-sighted for the year.
Bird 10 was BJ, a female blackbird first ringed in 2012. This is our first sighting of her since then so it is good to know she is still with us. Seen on the same day was BB, a male. He was ringed last year, and was seen on several occasions in 2013. BB was had a beak full of worms so has a brood somewhere.
