birds outside the window

Just below the window where I sit at the computer, ie the view I plan to photograph each month, I have just seen four species of bird in close succession. Firstly a wren, very agitated, fast and making quite a loud noise, passed about four feet from where I sit. Then there were blue tits and a sparrowy type affair. A female balckbird made her appearance, followed by the male. He proceeded to pull a worm from the ground, pecked at it for a while, let it have a final wiggle about in daylight, then swallowed. It must be wiggling around in his stomach.

Ted the cat has now marched past, so all the birds are agitated.

Have tried to cpy a picture of a wren into this blog, but don't seem to know how, so that's that.
