Blackbirds and hawberries

 I’ve just been watching two blackbirds who seemed as though they didn’t have a care in the world. 

They were flying in and out of a Hawthorn Hedge which runs along a lane.  As they perched on branches inside the hedge they pecked red haw berries off the branches.  They quickly picked a berry, turned their heads and picked another. 

I was stood close to them on the grass verge near the hedge but they didn’t seem to notice me.

It was good to see the Haw berries were providing a much needed breakfast feast for these two birds.    

Last week I saw a bird of prey flying along the same stretch of hedge, but I suppose that is life.
