Hi all, went for a walk around fleet pond the other day and found this Mr & Mrs Blackbird posing quite happily alongside the pond. Not much else to say really except I hope you like them as much as I do.

May be worth a look large if you have the time.

Great images. I can see I need more firepower than my 200mm will give me.
Best, Bill

Both great shots but the female always stands out better on photographs, I find the males so difficult to get right, my attempts are not a patch off your male capture.
