In the meantime we currently have this quite tame Blackbird occupying the back garden. This bird goes about its business whilst constantly singing with a very quiet, almost inaudible call. Whilst I have read about this call somewhere in the past, I have forgotten its name so would appreciate a reminder if anyone can help.
It also sings full throat whenever I'm tripping across to the bathroom through the night. 3am, 4am, anytime. (not because I'm tripping to the bathroom I might add)
Its mate however is very shy.
