Albinistic Blackbird in full song
Walking home from work last night about 1940h I turned on to my street and there was the elusive white Blackbird singing in full song, in full view on top of a television aerial and just metres from one of the song posts of a regular blackbird: it was nowhere to be seen. Ten minutes I was back there with my camera and sound recording equipment but it was gone. The albinistic individual had been seen off by dominant territory holder. Still, the walk back produced some excellent views of the Swifts entering and leaving their nest sites.
