How many would notice if they didn’t hear the blackbird sing in the morning, all of us, this captures it magnificently.
The little blackbird is dead
No longer will I wake to the
cheerful song she sang
each morning from
the old oak tree outside
my bedroom window

This lands in my Reader the day I discover a blackbird has decided to nest in a cavity somewhere near my guttering. Very weird behaviour for a blackbird. I think it’s mistaken itself for a housemartin! But the song is so sweet.
Unusual perhaps but needs must in times of diminishing space for wildlife

I think maybe it’s commandeered a seagull’s nest.
The gulls around here (Lesser Blackbacked, Common & Herring Gulls) seem to mistake every tiny ledge around our roofs as cliffs. Noisy in the extreme when the chicks hatch, and don’t dare to walk any place near to a chick if it’s fallen off the roof. No, I don’t live in middle of nowhere; I live in a former fishing port.
