I’ve seen this bird a few times recently. I’m not sure if it has become more common, or whether I am noticing them more – or if I’m just getting more photographs that are good enough to identify them. I think it is probably the first, because they do draw attention to themselves, perched in bushes singing very loudly.
I’m also now seeing more jackdaws and thrushes than in recent years. I think the jackdaws are getting bolder about coming into the village, but thrushes were struggling, so good to see their comeback. I’ll post pictures of both species soon!
