LETTER: Did anyone else hear a blackbird?

A few days ago, it was late afternoon, I was walking through Hall Place in Spalding towards WH Smith, when I heard the unmistakable sound of a blackbird singing.

It was perched in the small tree that is by the circle of raised flowerbeds and the benches.

There in the gathering dusk of a winter’s afternoon, with people going about their business, a blackbird blessed us with its delightful song.

I wonder if anyone else heard it?
