blackbirds

A pair of blackbirds flicker back and forth between a cotoneaster - choked with scarlet berries - and a bare rowan tree.  The male bird sits watching in the tree, awaiting his turn with the berries.  He peers at me nervously through the window, his yellow beak glimmering, a tiny Belisha beacon in the rain.
