One of a few that were inhabiting Tesco's carpark. Also the least timid as it didn't mind me coming right up after the rest flew off. Also started singing after a few photos.

Lol! It must have been guarding the berries. I have yet to come across one that didn't fly off as soon as it saw me.

Got within a couple of feet! Also got a recording of the song, but the noise of the dual carriageway drowns it out a bit...
Cheers!
