I heard my first Blackbird of the year at dusk last Friday evening - singing from the main quad at UCL just off the racetrack of Euston Road, Central London. This seems to be later than normal, perhaps due to the colder winter. Last Thursday there was a male Blackbird calling from inside Euston station and I could hear it as I was coming up the escalators from the Underground! On the evening of the 14th Lisa and I heard a lonely Little Owl calling in Sunny Hill Park - only the second time I've heard one here in the suburbs of North London.
