Blackbird: What a little beaut! I was happy to spend the morning at Pennington Hall Park searching for this striking leucistic male Blackbird
It was pointed out to me by a local birder, aptly named Paul Pennington on a L.O.S facebook page that this bird was here.

This was my first visit to Pennington Hall Park which is a lovely little public park which has  a small wildlife area near the car park and it is here this male Blackbird is hanging around.

The bird spent most of its time high up in the trees singing, but did on occasion come down to forage and chase of rival male Blackbirds, it even posed nicely along the back fence.
