Back last month in this blogpost I told you about a juvenile Blackbird that had taken up residence in the Dyer garden. As recently as last Friday she spent a lot of the day with me at close quarters while I was laying slabs in the garden.
Sadly that was the last time that we saw her. We have been out there all weekend but no sign at all. So I have come to the conclusion that she has either succumbed to her condition or has been predated.
We are quite sad as she appeared to be improving but as I said in the original post I didn't think she would survive for too long.
