Nature note

I was walking a day or two ago in a garden near where I live when I saw a blackbird.  But I was astonished, and riveted to the spot, as I watched him searching for food in the lawn.

He had a well-formed black body and an orange beak … and a very white head.  I had never seen (what I now know to be) a partial albino blackbird before.

I didn’t have my camera with me …
