Hi there, just joined today and am going to do my first birdwatch between 29/31 Jan!!
But saw this unusual bird in my garden this morning! (Kemnay, Aberdeenshire)
Leucistic Blackbird, first time I had seen one! Not a great pic, but can see it quite well! just thought I’d share
Welcome, Janie, from me down south in the Thames Valley.
Blackbirds seem particularly prone to leucism but I've no idea why.
Good luck with the BGBW. I usually find that birds disappear as if they know what we are up to.
