Bruce the Blackbird in the snow

Hi

Sadly, this is the last shot of Bruce, our semi--tame Blackbird, in the snow, on his favourite fence perch, who was with us throughout lock down.

He was chased off his "patch" by a pair of younger Blackbirds and we have not seen him since mid December 2021.

He came to be fed on a stone outside our kitchen door at least three times each day for almost 2 years. We took him on because he was slightly disabled with an over-long beak and a club foot

He is sadly missed.
