We have had plenty of sunny weather here in Staffordshire recently, but this weekend has been constant rainy weather. Looking out of my bedroom window this morning and seeing lots of gloomy, black skies, I spotted one of my local male blackbirds. There are two male blackbirds who often chase each other outside my flat. Male blackbirds are very territorial.
But this morning, one of the blackbirds was looking very wet and sorry for himself sitting in the rain on a tree outside my flat.
