Blackbird Singing on a Lamp at the Pavilion

Yesterday in the Pavilion garden we saw this wonderful blackbird singing on top of a lamp. A very proud bird with a lovely song. He had a bright yellow bill which he opened very wide when he sang - I wish you could see it better on the video.

I hear so much birdsong at home, but in Brighton it's mostly seagulls raucous cry. I love them, but it's nice to hear other birds sometimes, too.

I can't see it at all, but I love the birdsong. For some reason it is very familiar to me. Are blackbirds in France also?

I'm sure they are in France also. The Channel isn't that big.
