The story of the blackbird

The gentle and rather tame little baby blackbird was taken to a wild animal sanctuary today. Latisha, as she became known, was almost fully fledged but needs a couple of weeks to help her along the way before she is released into the wild to fend for herself.

We’ll miss her, but she is a wild animal who will not thrive in captivity and she needs to be flying around the countryside and breeding to give us more beautiful blackbird songs.
