A Blackbird is often a gardener’s best friend, except when it comes to Strawberries. You can put bird netting over Strawberries.
I always tell them I don’t mind sharing fruit, but leave me some too!
The Blackbird follows me around when I do the garden and it seems to smile at me. He is a lovely friend and looks for worms, slugs, snails or other bugs to eat.
Don’t put down poison on the garden, Actually encouraging them more and doing more gardening, the snails and slugs get less in number.
