Blackbird singing in the dead of night

I think there are a couple pairs of blackbirds nesting in the rapidly collapsing shed. There’s definitely a pair that go completely nuts with the alarm call whenever the cat goes too close. I love blackbirds for their looks and songs at dusk.

And this is a favourite Beatles’ track as well.

Unfortunately, I think the cat got in as this morning there were black feathers on the lounge rug and a smug cat on the sofa.
