These blackbirds are among the first to sing in the early hours in April, May and June when the Dawn Chorus is at its best. The picture above shows a male bird with its black plumage, yellow beak and yellow ring round the eye.
The female is brown with a speckled breast so she shows up less while sitting on the eggs.
Listen to the song here, courtesy of Paul Dinning, or come on our Dawn Chorus Walk on 30th April. Click on the link below.
