I thought this photo that was taken today in trees yonder the orange berry trees is very apt for this time of year. There are two blackbirds enjoying the peaceful surroundings. They appear fiercely independent. I think there could be a nest nearby, I’m not sure. There was a lot of house-extension going on just underneath the trees, earlier on in the year, so probably that could have deterred the birds setting up a nest in this tree. The area is a trifle open than it was before the renovations. Some trees nearby were cut down to make way for natural light to the new addition. Shame really.
